Allan Marzetta Altek Owner Gets High Performance With Down-To-Earth Style

Grayden Jones, Staff writer, May 13, 1996

Allan Marzetta owns one of the largest machining and plastic-injection molding companies on the West Coast, with 180 employees and $15 million in annual sales.

But he doesn’t act like it.

As chairman of Altek Inc. in Liberty Lake, Marzetta puts on white socks, not executive airs. He’d rather pound nails at his new $5 million factory than attend pretentious downtown business meetings. He’d rather stalk a Canadian moose with his 300 Winchester than the next big deal.
