ALTEL was created in 1989 following the fusion of 3 companies working in the field of security.

In the beginning, the company focused on the installation of access control systems, remote camera surveillance and anti-intrusion systems. The company leaders have accumulated many years’ of extensive expertise through subcontracting work for several major players in the security market. They’ve concentrated their efforts and assembled a respectable client base.

Year after year, ALTEL has consistently invested in staff training to establish a strong and independent team for meeting client demand. With a well-trained team, a philosophy aimed at making clients top priority and committed in delivering high quality products; ALTEL is now recognized as a company that delivers high quality projects, no matter the obstacles in accordance with agreements and standards!

Due to this well-earned reputation, an increasing number of large companies have entrusted their security projects to ALTEL. Faced with this growing demand, ALTEL opened an additional division in Québec City. Our staff at the Québec location share the same philosophy as our head office and better equipped to consolidate certain accounts on the provincial level. During the same year, it was decided to add additional services: Motorized gates, security turnstiles and computerized services. The rapid evolution of the systems resulted in the need for an IT team.

In 2008, ALTEL opened a branch in Toronto to meet the increasingly urgent demand.

In late 2009, ALTEL decided to design its own parking barrier access system. A research and development department was established to create a reader exclusively for this specific function.

In 2013, due to the growing demand of customers located throughout Canada, ALTEL penetrated the markets in Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba.

In 2015, ALTEL offers services to many clients who now have access service outlets across Canada.

With the implementation to date of more than 3,000 projects for a wide range of renowned customers, ALTEL is proud of their operations to date and plans to continue their progression in the years to come!
