Altra Business System

The Altra Business System is a framework of concepts and methods for driving sustainable competitive advantage. Focusing on a set of Core Value Drivers that reflect our priorities related to Customers, Shareholders, and Associates, we work ceaselessly to improve the flow of value to our customers. We do this by teaching our Associates to utilize a robust set of tools and processes to systematically identify and eliminate waste. This assures that we provide our Customers with innovative solutions at the shortest lead time, highest quality and best possible value. And this leads to consistent, above-market returns to our Shareholders and a work environment that fully stimulates and develops the capabilities of our Associates.
