Altus to Expand with New Headquarters

Reading time ( words)

Altus Group's success and growth continues with the announcement of a new purpose-built facility, which is confirmed to open in 2019 helping to serve its rapidly increasing customer base. A leading supplier of capital equipment in the UK and Ireland, Altus is outgrowing its current headquarters in Stockwood, Worcestershire, and has invested in a 404 sqm building in Redditch, which will be open in early 2019.

"We are delighted to announce that we will have a brand new purpose-built HQ to start 2019 in style," said Richard Booth, Altus managing director. "Due to the continued expansion of our client base, number of engineers in our team, and product portfolio; we have taken the opportunity to upgrade our facilities to better support our activities in the UK. It will help us serve customers from one large, efficient and centralised facility which is located  logistically very close to the M40 for easy accessibility.

"Altus is the fastest growing UK electronics distribution business and we are proud to say that we will now have a location to match our current and future ambitions. We feel this growth is due to the unrivaled support we offer all of our partners and our investment in engineering talent. 

"Further to the 'on the road support', the new facility will be focused around a fully kitted demonstration facility and training room in order to run thorough evaluations and training for our partners away from the distraction of daily production. We hope this will significantly improve our customer experience and level of product knowledge prior to installation."

With its long-term strategy for growth, Altus requires intelligent investments in both physical infrastructure and human capital to meet its plans. The larger premises will allow Altus to grow and increase its team of experts in the coming years.

Supply Chain in Crisis

02/08/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In a traditional design flow, the project team tends to use the parts they already know and have footprints for—maybe a little long in the tooth, but known quantities, after all. Except these are not traditional times. Component supplies, prices, and lead times are in a great deal of turmoil. The automotive, IoT, and telecommunications sectors are vacuuming components out of the supply chain at a record pace, exerting influences like early obsolescence of older components and more.
