Altro have been at the forefront of innovation for almost 100 years. Today, working closely with architects, end customers, engineers, designers and contractors around the world, our insight and expertise help them transform everyday spaces into environments that can improve the wellbeing of everyone that uses them.
And by consistently turning creative thinking into practical, real-world solutions – that maintain the highest standards of safety and durability – Altro have become synonymous with quality.
As a family-founded business, we have a strong sense of what we value and a way of thinking inspired by The Bauhaus – a balance of quality, form and design-led function – that puts people’s needs at the heart of everything we do. It’s a human-centred approach to designing for the demands of 21st century life.
It’s a history that means we value the bold, the brave and the new. From focusing on how the different sectors we serve need their spaces to perform, to the call for more environmentally sustainable materials, Altro are constantly challenging what is possible and seeking new ways of inspiring our customers and answering their biggest challenges.
With offices across Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, we remain committed to developing solutions that stand the test of time.
We combine the best in contemporary style with the functionality required to improve the way we all live and work, wherever in the world that may be.
We are Altro.

We believe in the power of design thinking to develop human-centred solutions to revolutionise the built environment.
Good ideas come from good insights. Exploring the different ways people do things and understanding why, we get to experience their physical and emotional needs, we get to know how they think about the spaces they use and we learn what is important to them.
By looking at these challenges from more than one perspective, more solutions appear. That means more opportunities; more possibilities. Design thinking allows their potential to be realised in a collaborative environment – conducive to innovation and geared to delivering exceptional results. With this we aspire to give our clients the confidence to succeed in their respective markets.
It means we don’t stop at a product’s appearance or even how it performs. We ensure it fulfils our clients’ needs and shapes the experience of everyone using that particular space.
This is what we stand for; this is what we value and of course, this is what we do.
