Quor, previously known as Brady Technologies, has been a dominant force in the CTRM sector, especially in metals, for over three decades. With a rich legacy marked by flagship products like Trinity and Fintrade, they’ve been unparalleled in their expertise.

Our custom logotype, designed in an upper-case sans-serif style, radiates a timeless elegance, with distinctive rounded edges in the Q, O, and R letters adding a touch of sophistication.
