HR – Iain Hutchinson and a future member of the HR Team
In April 2022, Iain celebrated his 14th work anniversary! Wow 14 years congratulations!
Here's a few words from the main man himself.
‘14 years at Altro have flown by! Being one of three HR Business Partners for the Altro Group, I look after the commercial half of Altro, supporting managers and employees. I can honestly say that no two days are the same! The pandemic years have certainly been a challenge, but I believe have also helped shape the company for the future. As well as work challenges, I also became a dad for the first time, so lots to juggle, but an occasional cuddle when working from home is great’
Technical – Meet Kuldeep Dhillon, one of our amazing Senior Lab Technicians here at Altro
As a Senior Lab Technician, I engage in a wide variety of tasks. These range from supporting the manufacturing lines with any issues that may occur, helping to ensure a smooth production run, to liaising with various other departments to deliver new product developments and improvements whilst maintaining product compliance. No day is ever identical, which keeps every day interesting.
I graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2014 with a BSc in Wildlife Conservation, which stemmed from a love of animals, which led to a few pets over the years, from a German Shepherd to a Gecko. When I’m not at work, I can be found reading a book, playing video games or out and about with friends and family.
A fun fact about me:
Since working at Altro I have been an Elf, a Leopard, a Superhero and a Magician all for our company parties.
Manufacturing – Michael Page plays a very important role in manufacturing some of the Altro products at our site in Letchworth Garden City a Manufacturing Technician.
He celebrated his first year with us in June 2022 and is a massive movie buff! Before working at Altro he was a zoo keeper so he's really in to zoology.
In his spare time he just recently started running a few months ago and completed his 1st 10k race for life!
Meet Samantha Udeshi, our amazing Specification Consultant for the East London region
I have now worked at Altro for over ten years! My first role at Altro was as a Sales Coordinator in our Customer Care Centre in Letchworth Garden City. One of the things I enjoy the most at Altro is the team. Working through my role in the care centre, I have worked with many departments across the entire business and have collaborated with several different colleagues. I have worked as a Specification Consultant for eight months now, and every day is different, which I really enjoy. I’ve got to know an entirely new side to the business, and it’s great to get out and speak to current and prospective clients and talk about our product range.
Fun fact about me is that before our two young children stole all of our spare time, my partner and I would work as tv and film extras. My partner and I actually met at Altro where he also previously worked, so I suppose I have Altro to thank for my kids, so thanks!
Walls - Meet Meet James Peasgood, The Operations Team Leader at our Walls division in Lowestoft.
James has been in the business since November 2012 and manages the Lowestoft Logistics team. He’s also responsible for managing our UK & Irish deliveries, ensuring orders are packed/dispatched and delivered on time for same day & next day deliveries.
‘The main thing I enjoy about my role is the people I work with. We’re a small team in Lowestoft, but we all collaborate and go the extra mile to ensure we delight our customers. I also enjoy the reactiveness of the role and working in a fast-paced environment.
Fun fact about me – I am the Altro Walls undisputed Table Tennis champion! (Have been for a number of months now and yes, we have a table tennis table here on site!) In my spare time – I’m a Norwich City fan (Someone has to support them) and try and go to as many games as possible. I like going to the gym and also reading a good book! I’m also a husband & father to 3 beautiful children!’
