Since we were established in 1994, Alternative has built up an impressive collection of accolades and awards, in recognition of its business performance, development, innovation and customer services.
We have also worked hard and succeeded in the award and retention of the most important UK and international standards for our industry around security, quality and business continuity. We are one of only a few independent businesses in the UK to hold such a complete set of accreditation and one of only 5% of BSI accredited businesses globally to hold more than four ISO certifications for quality, service, business continuity, security and environment.
We are also an approved supplier to the NHS’s Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA), and registered with Achilles to provide telecoms services to the utilities sector. In addition to this we hold a certificate of Health & Safety from the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS).
