Armare: a look at the company, the history, the mission

“Armare” means “to provide a ship with all it needs to navigate” or “to equip a sailing vessel”.
So, we find the vision of the company in the meaning of the name, extended to what the company can now offer to its customers.

In 2012 Armare celebrated 20 years of its foundation. It is the continuation of a long family tradition, whose knowledge has been handed on from father to son. Over two hundred years of history in the production of ropes, set Armare among the leading companies in the sector of nautical ropes, offering a comprehensive range of technologically advanced products.

Armare designs, manufactures and tests its products in Italy, in San Giorgio di Nogaro (Udine) - 4,000 m2 of twisting, stranding, braiding, special treatments, splicing, testing and hand finishing. The high level of the
development of human resources, in the areas of production, technical research, administration, marketing and sales, allows the company to offer a product that the market recognizes as a leader within the highest sectors. One of the hallmarks of Armare, is the ability to personalise the already wide range of products, with custom finishes: this unique offer, allows all operators, designers, architects or end users to satisfy every possible need.

Armare constantly attends the most important International Marine Exhibitions and is always proposing new products. This reflects the fact that continuous innovation is written in its DNA.
