AN ENDURING RELATIONSHIP ON A GRAND SCALE
The Gillespie Group and Altro have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship through many successful projects and installations. The Gillespie Group and Altro share a customer-first philosophy, placing them at the forefront of everything they do and encouraging collaboration between colleagues and customers. As a family-run business they are committed to supplying high performance flooring and wall cladding in all aspects of service and support.
With headquarters in Wilmington, Massachusetts, Altro operates in diverse sectors with core customer bases in health and senior care, food and drink, education, and transport where safety and hygiene are of paramount importance. The company also operates in other sectors that require safety flooring and wall cladding for tough, demanding environments. These include leisure, retail and offices, prisons and defense, and manufacturing and warehousing.
Altro is recognized as an industry-leader, having invented safety flooring in 1947. Their current generation of safety flooring exceeds international safety and hygiene standards and offers sustained slip resistance for the life of the product. The company invented hygienic wall cladding systems in 1982, another example of its innovative ownership and culture. Today, Altro Whiterock, a PVCu sheet, incorporates wall cladding and accessories designed for compatibility not just with the Altro Whiterock range, but with Altro flooring as well.
Joints and junctions are key to system integrity. Altro products offer smooth and secure joining methods that prevent the ingress of dirt and moisture. Easy to keep clean, Altro products are non-porous and non-shedding, so nothing can get in or out. And because they have high impact resistance, damage that can trap bacteria is unlikely.
The Gillespie Group maintains a close working partnership with Altro to ensure correct installation and optimum performance of all materials, particularly in situations where bacteria-free environments are an absolute. In order to assure complete product functionality, The Gillespie Group’s team of skilled technicians are specially trained and certified in Altro installation and installation equipment.
