New year, new opportunities

Our good news at the end of last year was our acquisition of Debolon, a vinyl manufacturer in Germany that shares many of the values that we at Altro hold.  Also a third-generation family run business, the company has focused on sustainability and safety as its core goals for the products it develops.

I am very pleased to see the enthusiasm for this announcement and the positive reception it has had in Germany.  I think this opens a new future to both companies, where we can work together to continue to develop and produce products that exceed safety, hygiene and sustainability standards.   We can now offer a larger product portfolio and more choice to our customers, while continuing to expand and improve our current product lines.

In the near future we plan to develop and extend the Dessau manufacturing plant.  Having a highly productive manufacturing base in Central Europe is a key part of our international expansion and growth strategy.  With a production facility based in Central Europe, we can increase our commitment to sustainability by producing and distributing products more locally.  We can also continue to provide the highest standards of customer service you would expect from Altro.   

We look forward to this new chapter in the history of Altro and Debolon.
