ARMOR Puts the Brakes on 2020 ARMOR Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show – Stay Tuned for 2021 Show!

ARMOR is putting on the brakes for its 2020 ARMOR Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show, but the wheels are already in motion for the 2021 car show, so stay tuned!

The planning committee of the ARMOR Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show didn’t want to do it, but in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 ARMOR Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show has been cancelled.  Health and safety in the workplace and in the community is the top priority and the reason for this year’s cancellation.

The proceeds of this annual event are donated each year to the local chapter of the Salvation Army to benefit the communities of Livingston County.  Especially during these unique and uncertain times, please consider making an individual donation of your time or resources to them at

Over the past 13 years, this classic car show has grown in size, participation and reputation; from the first show held in 2007 with 40 cars, to recent years where 450 cars attended. To date, this event has raised over $171,000.

Plans for 2021 are in overdrive and we are going to rally!  Mark your calendar now for October 2, 2021, the date for the 13th annual ARMOR Great Pumpkin Classic Car Show.  For additional information and to register for the 2021 show, contact us at

We Are Open: Defense and Energy Industrial Base Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce

ARMOR full product line

Dear Valued ARMOR Customers and Supply Partners,

Today, March 23, 2020, the Governor of Michigan announced a “Stay at Home” Executive Order No. 2020-21 requiring the temporary requirement to suspend all activities not deemed necessary to sustain or protect life. While Armor Protective Packaging is deemed a critical infrastructure company, and will remain open, we want to assure you we are doing everything we can to take all precautions to keep our employees and their families safe during these extraordinary times.

ARMOR supplies various industrial companies with critical products including the Defense, Energy and Transportation sectors. We have received communication from Defense contractors and the Department of Defense asking that we maintain the ability to supply needed product. On March 16, 2020 the President of the United States issued updated Coronavirus Guidance for America. This guidance states that: ”If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security…… you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.”

Because many other industrial sectors are shutdown, ARMOR is maintaining a skeleton crew to process and ship orders. Nearly all of our office personnel are working remotely to limit the number of people we have in our facility. Two weeks ago we instituted Best Practices as communicated by the CDC regarding cleaning and disinfecting guidelines as it pertains to COVID19. We are doing everything we can to assure a safe working environment.

As the situation changes rapidly, we will contact you should we anticipate any changes to your orders or delivery. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your ARMOR representative or call 1-800-365-1117 or email us at

Thank you for your support and please stay safe and healthy during these difficult times.

COVID-19 Update To Our Customers

We recognize that with the constantly changing COVID-19 situation around the world, this is an unprecedented time for everyone — a time that, for many, is filled with uncertainty. Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every one of you.

I want you to know you have our commitment to continue providing you with the products and services you depend on. For more than 40 years, ARMOR has put relationships with our partners, team members and the community at the forefront. This enduring mission continues to guide us as we closely monitor, assess and respond to this pandemic.

ARMOR is following the recommendations of health authorities as well as the directives issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

These include but are not limited to:

  • Enforcing protocols for any employee that has been in proximity of the virus or is symptomatic
  • Eliminating all non-essential travel among our teams and restricting access to our facilities
  • Expanding the deep cleaning and sanitation efforts at our facilities
  • Activating remote work scenarios for team members wherever possible
  • Practicing social distancing in any situation where interactions are unavoidable

The majority of the items that are used in the production of our products are sourced domestically. At this time, ARMOR does not anticipate any raw material supply challenges, or disruption to our production. If the situation arises, we are prepared to manage through the emergency.

Should any of our facilities be impacted by COVID-19 in the future, we have multiple extrusion locations, redundancy in coating lines in the US and Canada, and our Stock & Ready inventory is a built-in emergency supply reserve to draw from as well. These redundancies should mitigate any potential disruptions. We appreciate your continued trust in ARMOR to protect both your parts and reputation.
