"We have built this alliance to develop new opportunities, to be close to our customers and offer a new mix of technologies, without losing sight of the importance of a consistent and high-quality service," added Alliora president Thierry Lucereau. The alliance aims to provide a wide range of folding and set up boxes and the latest anti-counterfeiting systems developed and approved by the luxury market, to a global market.
