" Ardian, our new brand "
Ardian is a name which has its roots in an old European language. It conveys a sense of strength, boldness and signifies a code of honor and behavior which we recognize in ourselves.
Ardian's color, a subtle coral, symbolizes life, longevity and fertility. We believe the symbolism of the Ardian name reflects a sense of shared purpose in the pursuit of excellence.
