I would like to share some exciting organizational changes with you that I believe will streamline the sales, estimating and order process for our customers. We have moved our Customer Service Representative (CSR) Team, which continues to be led by Diane Darr and Redus Voss, to work directly in our sales division. Their goal is to work with customers with current orders to guide them through the order process while providing updates. Diane and Redus are past employees of André Corporation that we have hired and have the expertise to provide an exemplary experience for all of our customers. Our CSR team can be reached at orders@ArmorAndre.com or 574-293-0207.

 

I will continue to work with customers in a sales role as Division President of Armor André. I have been with the parent company, The Armor Group, for several years and have more than a decade of sales and leadership experience. Our estimating team of John Patton and Chris Shewman has more than 60 years of combined experience in a manufacturing environment and has been with Armor for nearly 25 years combined. Customers with new orders or requests for quotes should work directly with Armor André’s sales and estimating team, which can be reached at sales@ArmorAndre.com or 574-293-0207.

 

Our new website, www.ArmorAndre.com has information about our company, news updates, as well as an easy way to submit your requests for quote. Go to www.ArmorAndre.com/RFQ to submit your requirements online for a quote.

 

We are happy to announce we have hired the majority of the past André Corporation employees during the transition to Armor André. We plan to grow the business and have already made plans to add nearly 10% more employees in Elkhart to the workforce over the next several months. Some of our key hires will be in sales and operations. We are committed to our customers and our long-term strategy to provide our customers with a quality product on time at a reasonable price.

 

We hope to continue to be your business partner now and in the future as we see more exciting changes at Armor André. If you have questions or comments about the company, please feel free to reach out to me.
