ARMOR Protective Packaging is named one of the state’s coolest places to work for the second year in a row

For the second year in a row, Armor Protective Packaging® was named one of the state’s coolest places to work by Crain’s Detroit Business.  Not only is the ARMOR team thrilled to receive the honorable title of “cool,” it is celebrating the company’s jump in ranking from 55 out of 100 in 2017 to 7th in 2018!

 

As a company, ARMOR promotes a culture that supports work-life balance; that puts people and relationships before profits, and that encourages being AuFUNtic, ARMOR’s term for authentic, genuine and fun.  “We want our team to be the same people at work that they are at home or in their personal lives – approachable and ‘real’ – or as we call it “AuFUNtic,’” said David Yancho, Vice President, of ARMOR.

 

Crain’s Detroit Business Cool Places to Work in Michigan is a statewide survey and awards program designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Michigan, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2018 Cool Places to Work in Michigan list is made up of 100 companies in three size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees) and large (250+ U.S. employees).  In addition, ARMOR was also named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018.

 

“Over the years, we’ve done some really cool things as a company — we created a consumer brand in the wake of the recession and now have products on the shelves of AutoZone and Home Depot; we received global approval at OEM’s such as Volkswagen, Cummins and Caterpillar; and we built a new, uniquely decorated company headquarters in Howell.  But the thing I’m probably most proud of is being named as a Cool Places to Work because without having a place that people want to come to every day, where they enjoy working with each other, none of those other great things could have been accomplished,” Yancho said.
