Alticor has over 500 patents worldwide. We invite and encourage our suppliers to make Alticor the first stop when demonstrating new technologies / innovations.Supply Chain Excellence:High quality products are a must at Alticor. Distributors are especially concerned about quality because often they have only one or two of the item they’re trying to sell on hand. If that item is not made correctly, it tarnishes on the reputation of the distributor.Lowest total cost:Form partnerships with suppliers to purchase products and services at the lowest total cost.
