Quality policy

Since ever ALTA is inspired by the Quality Policy which is translated in each and every action  outside – customers as first but also our partner suppliers – and inside the Company, toward our employees.

The constant attention required by such actions  is based on the respect of Norms and on a strict cycle of checks and verifications. Not only: in order to transform norms into daily practices and in order to achieve effective checks you have to constantly exercise awareness of the result of  your  choices and actions. These are the principles which have been inspiring us for the past 50 years.

Suppliers

All of ALTA’s suppliers are serious and high quality.
Our inspectors run periodical audits on the suppliers, final results are critical for their continued supply to us. Suppliers’ production is certified to conform to European norms and ALTA’s technical specification.
Every tube is delivered with outside diameter marking’s, giving the steel grade, mill’s and ALTA’s logo, EN production norm, and heat (cast) number that must match the certificate’s provided as to give a full traceability of the product.
Quality control of the machined surface is done on all tubes, either visually or through automatic systems. If we find defects, tubes are properly marked and quarantined in specific racks. A nonconformity report is immediately sent to the supplier along with reactive/corrective actions.

Employees

In order to offer a professional and updated service, ALTA is constantly training its employees.
The whole ground staff goes through a daily briefing, to solve any problem, activating corrective actions.
Every member of the commercial department speaks fluently, three languages for a full communication with the customer.
