Learn more about how we’re supporting the fight against Covid-19

With the fast-changing COVID-19 situation, we understand what challenging times these are for everyone: for you, your business and your family. As a family business ourselves, our priority is taking care of our colleagues, our customers, partners and suppliers.

We have introduced extra measures across our sites to look after our colleagues and all those who still need to come to our premises in person, including delivery staff: we are promoting social distancing at work; encouraging those who can work from home to do so, including both office and field teams; postponing any non-essential visits and events; implementing more vigorous cleaning regimes; and employing video technology to conduct meetings and customer visits wherever possible.

With this in mind, I wanted to get in touch with you personally to explain what steps we are taking at Altro to continue supporting you with your business.

The Global Altro Leadership Team is meeting daily to consider the latest government guidance in those markets in which we operate. As a global business with local presence, we can respond swiftly to regional customer needs and are structured in such a way that we are able to maintain stock levels and global supplies. I want to reassure you that we are very much open for business as usual and will do everything we can to respond to your individual circumstances.

In the coming days and weeks, we will keep you updated on how we are responding to the evolving situation. You will shortly hear from us about all the different ways you can stay in touch with us, so that we can carry on working together. Should you have any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your regular, local Altro contact.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you, your family and colleagues good health and assure you that we are doing everything we can to maintain the excellent level of customer service that you have come to expect from Altro.

With kind regards

Altro walls improves food production with new kitchen

Altro Whiterock White

Espoo’s new 6000m² kitchen is a model example of modern kitchen. Its design focused on improving efficiency, maximising hygiene and employee comfort. Every day the new kitchen produces 11,600 meals, catering for the day-care centres in Espoo.

“The design of the new kitchen was aimed at streamlining the operational processes. Food production has dramatically improved our new premises,” says Helena Tolvanen, Espoo Catering’s designer.

“I had never used Altro Whiterock before. Significant progress has been made on many issues, such as the maintenance of hygiene. The problem with tiles has been seams, which can never be completely cleaned. The wall sheets mean that the new kitchen is completely seamless.”

“In the kitchen, the processes are carefully planned: the goods entrance, the refrigerator, the cooking, the washing, the packaging,” says Timo Helminen, Architect, Siren Architects.

“In the kitchen, the choice of materials is very important both for hygiene and comfort. The wall sheets are easy to clean and do not break like tiles, so bacteria cannot hide.”

Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior.

Altro Whiterock White is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved and is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C. It meets all current European Union (EU) Directives on health and hygiene. This makes it particularly suitable for use in commercial kitchens.
