Technology and R+D
“Simplicity is the only
form of sophistication”
All Altus products have been tested by mountaineers and expert athletes. We have accompanied them on their adventures and have made history alongside some of them. Together we have reached Everest, Annapurna, Lhotse, Vignemale and Aconcagua summits and the frozen soils of Greenland. We have visited the five continents alongside the very best, striving to perfect the technology of our products based on their experience.
Altus currently has the following certificates that ensure the high standards of its products and production processes:
ALTUS was the first Spanish brand in the sector to obtain this quality standard. We continuously improve our work system to offer our customers the guarantee that gives our products reliability. ISO 9001 enables us to control all the steps in the production process, complying with the milestones of the standard, from the choice of materials to the end result. Nothing is left to chance.
We love nature. That’s why we manufacture our products with the utmost respect for the environment. Regardless of the activity, size or location of your company, this standard involves a high number of environmental demands. To comply with it, the use of tools that integrate the environment into the overall management of the company is a must. That means doing things with the least environmental impact possible.
We also comply with this standard to guarantee compliance with NATO quality guarantee requirements in the production and supply of clothing and camping items (backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, and other mountain living and movement accessories) for use by the Armed Forces and the Law Enforcement Agencies.
