Outfitting warriors since 2017  
by Anthony Rischard, 2017-03-08, 23:26  Spam?  80.12.63...
We are a historical European martial arts manufacturer and supplier, essentially an armoury for historical combat. For our new brand we wish to use the (slightly tongue in cheek) motto:

"Outfitting warriors since 2017" in the sense of "we have been outfitting (or arming)"

We prefer the term "bellator" for warrior and we think "armare" may good for our verb, but we are not latinists and are stuck on the declension and conjugation... and the "since"...

Google has given us: "Bellatores armati cum MMXVII", but I am wary.

Any thoughts?

Thank you very much!

Your sentence is a right passive voice, you just need to correct the "cum" (with) to "ex" (since)

- Bellatores armati ex MMXVII

Personally, I'd use a gerund because it looks good (and the English gerund comes from this use in Latin)

- Bellatores armando ex MMXVII

The common style in Latin was writtting the verb at the end, but sentences in gerund usually start with it:

- Armando bellatores ex MMXVIII

It is proper Latin and it looks easier for English speakers.
