Its expanded product range includes forklifts, handling equipment, storage and racking systems and other specialised equipment with together with mezzanine flooring, access and security systems and virtually any piece of equipment required to support any distribution or manufacturing operation.
Altegra has the investment, strategy and product line-up to shake up the sector through its independent-business approach and ability to bring together the most comprehensive selection of products. Its expert project management skills and a track record in delivering complex, turn-key solutions also set it aside from rivals in the sector.
Group Managing Director, Steve Petford explained that Altegra will be a positive force for change, providing value-adding solutions that are customer driven.” Instead of customers being shoehorned to limited supplier led options, the solutions and equipment possibilities we can provide are infinite, everything a customer might need.
