This tool has been probably manufactured by “A.R.”
ARC was established in the 7 Rue Charles-Renouvier in Paris
A.R. was established in the 39 Rue de Chateaudun in Paris
See the catalogue information that is attached.
There is no A.R. branding on this tool. The only reason I listed this crimper as an A.R. tool is because of its listing in a catalogue of A.R.
