Driving Continuous Improvement: The Altra Business System

Portescap is one of the world’s leading providers of miniature motion technologies. As part of Altra Industrial Motion, our mission is to help customers control their worlds of quality, costs, delivery and business by:

• Listening.
The voice of the customer drives everything we do from product development to shipping and follow-up.

• Continuous Improvement.
The Altra Business System guides our manufacturing, engineering, operations and sales business processes to provide the foundation for efficiency and innovation.

• Innovation.
Our extensive experience, combined with creativity, allows us to continually introduce breakthrough products, services and processes.

• Employing the Best People.
We are passionate about recruiting, developing and retaining the best talent available – people who use their skills, creativity and integrity to develop innovative ways to meet customer needs.

Listening to customers, advanced business processes, talented people and technical know-how all combine to provide an environment for innovation throughout Portescap. As a result of this innovation, we can offer our customers low installation and operating costs, high performance, faster availability and consistently high quality.

Success doesn't happen by accident.

We have a proven system for achieving it. We call it the Altra Business System (ABS), and it drives every aspect of our culture and performance. We use ABS to guide what we do, measure how well we execute, and create options for doing even better - including improving ABS itself.

Fueled by Altra's core values, the ABS engine drives the company through a never-ending cycle of change and improvement: exceptional people develop outstanding plans and execute them using world-class tools to construct sustainable processes, resulting in superior performance. Superior performance and high expectations attract exceptional people, who continue the cycle. Guiding all efforts is a simple philosophy rooted in four customer-facing priorities: Quality, Delivery, Cost and Innovation.
