Kennedy Flooring visits Altro

October 2014 No Comments


Kennedy Flooring had the pleasure of visiting Altro in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, England in the past week.

Tim Walker (Altro’s Global Walls Development Manager) picked me up from the airport and proceeded to wine and dine me. (Thank you very much)

The following morning commenced with a factory visit, I found this very interesting and informative to see how Altro’s Safety Flooring portfolio is made. It highlighted to me the amount of detail that Altro put into their processes, innovation and recycling of their Safety Flooring.

After lunch we had a brain storming session between Tim, Serge, Terry, Anita (Altro’s Management Team) and Eoin Kennedy (IFBrands Ireland). We discussed various innovative and improvement processes that can occur/will occur between Altro and Kennedy Flooring Ireland. From this we are both looking to improve our services to the Irish marketplace.

It is a testament to Altro that their commitment to the Irish marketplace has not wavered despite the difficulties here over the last few years.
