Welcome to Alta!
Alta Skiferbrudd, established in 1933, is the main producer of Alta Quartzite, a natural building material, quarried in the mountains surrounding the Alta Fjord in Norway, far north in the polar circle. Alta Quartzite has a pleasant grey-green appearance and a natural soft luster. Being a riven material, it has colour and texture variations that lend themselves to modern architecture. Alta Quartzite is used for roofing, paving, staircases, cladding: interior as well exterior. Alta Quartzite is naturally non-slip and extremely hard wearing.

Manager Marketing & Salesthe local news journal “Altaposten” gives an extensive visit report with a photo and headlines on the front page. Text: optimism in the mountains, sales over budget, better prices and new blood in the sales organization.

We are very happy to inform you, that as of 1 september 2014 W.N.(Wilco) Janssen will enter in service with us as Manager Marketing & Sales. Wilco is 35 years and is already an experienced marketier. In his current job has Wilco worldwide worked with agents and sole agents for the distribution of mineral products. Although these minerals are according to marketing terms "me too" products, sold in the market with a "push-strategy", while Alta Skiferbrudd BV with most of its products is active with a "pull strategy" in the "niche market". But this for sure will not be a problem for Wilco.
Wilco is also in the short term, the intended successor to the current managing director share-holder E.D.(Eddy) Wierenga.
All those directly involved in our BV, namely the two members of the Board, Mr W.E. (Willy) Hågensen (Chairman) and Mrs. A.M. (Arlette) van den Broek-Wierenga (member), as well as Mrs. Janneke de Vries (office-manager) have expressed their confidence in Wilco.
Meanwhile, Wilco is presented in Alta, Norway to our other shareholder, the cooperative of quarry workers Alta Skiferbrudd SA.
Attached some pictures of this visit in July 2014.
We look to the future with confidence
