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

Richard Kahn
CEO Floors and Managing Director, Altro Group

Altro serves up dream kitchen for celebrity chef

“Our dream of a beautiful kitchen is a reality. We are now happy to show customers around the kitchen.”

Richard Bainbridge
Celebrity chef, Benedicts Restaurant

Issue

Richard Bainbridge won BBC2’s Great British Menu in 2015, and opened Benedicts, in Norwich, three years ago. The restaurant has since won a raft of awards and been named in The Times Top 100 Restaurants in the UK, Square Meal Top 100, and been awarded 3AA Rosettes.

Richard wanted to expand the kitchen, with a new extension into the backof- house to form a larger, more open working environment, with dedicated preparation areas, including a new bakery and butchery zones.

Approach

It was essential that the kitchen was modern, well-equipped, easy to maintain, clean, safe, practical and the best possible working environment for staff. Richard approached Elite Foodservice Design with his brief and they immediately understood what he wanted to achieve. Daniel Ridd at Elite recommended Altro solution of floors, walls and ceiling to give the integrated, hygienic, sealed working environment.

Solution

Altro Whiterock hygienic ceilings combine with Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Whiterock White to deliver a complete hygienic, sealed system. Perfect for commercial kitchens, food processing areas, laboratories and environments with rigorous hygiene requirements, it forms an impervious, virtually maintenance-free system which can be hosed down in situ and provides a bright, durable surface which helps reduce condensation.

Altro Stronghold 30 can withstand temperatures from -30°C to +60°C so you can use it throughout the kitchen, including freezers.

“Elite has been an Altro Whiterock Premier Installer for many years, and this system is the best you can get.”

Daniel Ridd
Design Manager at Elite

Altro Stronghold 30 achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance and is designed to minimise risk in areas exposed to grease, oils and fats for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot.

Altro Whiterock White is the perfect, hygienic alternative to ceramic wall tiles, offering a proven, high performance option. Impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean.

Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Whiterock are Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved making it particularly suitable for commercial kitchens.
