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

Beaumont Royal Oak, USA

Master-crafted solution for pharmacy

Altro Suprema, Altro Whiterock

Although Master Craft Floors, Inc. was relieved to find their moisture mitigation system in full working order, Beaumont Royal Oak Central Pharmacy compounding laboratory was still experiencing moisture issues.

After a careful investigation, it was discovered the Royal Oaks, USA facility was suffering from a faulty condensation line in one of their coolers, allowing moisture to seep beneath the flooring. This eroded the bond between the floor prep and adhesive, causing the material to fail. As excess water can be a contaminant, the entire space had to be shut down until the issue was resolved.

Because of its hygienic nature, Master Craft Floors knew Altro safety flooring was the perfect choice. Altro Suprema is a 2mm safety floor that provides excellent slip resistance and 40 shades to fit interior design trends.

However, with scratches and chipped paint abounding, the wall became another issue - such gouges are a hotbed for contamination.

Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding was matched to the lab’s paint colour, and it was heat-welded and flash coved to the Altro Suprema to create a safe and contaminant-free environment.

Altro Whiterock is designed for environments with rigorous health and safety standards. When combined with Altro flooring, it creates a hygienic, durable, easy-to-clean and, fortunately for Royal Oak, watertight solution.
