This year, Altius are celebrating 10 years in business. After a busy few months at Altius HQ, we wanted to take the time to reflect on the past decade of success.
Altius was incorporated back in 2007, and it didn’t take long for the business to take off as we landed our first major client, Bellrock, just one year later.
In the following years Altius won a number of consecutive industry awards and built working relationships with household names such as Boots, Marks & Spencer and Morrisons.
Ten years down the line, we have secured our biggest contract yet with the National Contract from Rail Safety and Standards Board for the whole of the UK rail industry.
To show our journey from the beginning right up until the present day, we have created a special anniversary infographic, which will showcase just some of the highlights from the past decade.
Born out of a desire to improve the challenges supply chains posed to businesses, Altius builds on its current directors' wealth of experience within the industry to offer solutions to anyone working in, or managing supply chains.
