Alta Electronics is happy to announce that it has received registration under Canada’s Controlled Goods Program.

This registration enables Alta to continue its pursuit of Military and Defence contracts and provides its customers with the confidence that adequate controls are in place to ensure the safeguarding of sensitive information.

Alta’s registration number is CG18809 and is effective as of 3 August 2013.
