Who We Are


Welcome to our website, and thanks for taking the time to learn more about Alternate Systems. Our business is growing, and we are having a lot of fun serving clients and developing new capabilities.

Alternate Systems is an accredited full-service calibration and testing laboratory offering service in our lab or at your facility. We believe in developing our teammates and providing opportunities for growth and work/life balance. We are constantly implementing improvements to our processes and systems.

However, Alternate Systems is more than just an accredited calibration and testing laboratory. We like to build things. Alternate Systems can design and install an environmental monitoring system for a space of any size, and then complete a 21 CFR Parts 210/211 validation, including DQ/IQ/OQ/PQ and risk analysis for a complete independent verification and validation package. We can deploy hundreds of data loggers to environmentally map almost any space. As this is being written, we are upgrading a data logging system on a manufacturing machine.

Alternate Systems can calibrate electronic test and measurement instruments, process controls, thermometers, and non-destructive test equipment for measuring plating and coating depth, conductivity, and ferrite content. We can use our X-ray fluorescence instrument to measure and analyze the plating on your parts.

Also, Alternate Systems makes the best film and foil thickness standards in the world!

We hope you will decide to choose Alternate Systems to be your partner in measurement science. We will help you grow your business and become more profitable.

“To Alternate Systems,

I wanted to take this opportunity to commend you for your contribution to our facility’s efforts – in our 2014 corporate review, our facility was given exemplary marks for our processes regarding the control and maintenance of monitoring and recording devices within the warehouse; our high performance in these areas is made possible by your company’s diligent work in keeping our equipment calibrated and in excellent condition. I can personally attest to the knowledge, patience, and work ethic your company brings to bear in tending to our needs and helping us ensure that we are able to surmount any issues that could affect our business. See below for an excerpt from our most recent audit listing the “Best in Class” designations we received in the areas of measuring equipment control and maintenance:

IMTE – Control of Monitoring and Measuring Devices: Very thorough control of the temperature and scale equipment tracking, calibration and maintenance. Very critical in a GXP site.

Temperature Control and Monitoring: Very robust / compliant system in place for Temperature Mapping, Control, Maintenance and oversight.

Warmest Regards,

Alex Gaskin
Local QSHE Manager”

“To whom it may concern,

This is to confirm Cimcon finishing has had business relationship with Alternate systems for over ten years. The quality of service provided by Mr. Peter Wright has been unsurpassed among our other suppliers and service providers. Technical knowledge, Prompt response, sense of partnership with its customers and working with their team on regular base to advance their knowledge of the products and services available is among few of many offered by Alternate systems.

As such I always highly recommend Mr. Wright to other friends and colleagues in our industry. Please feel free to contact me if you need to discuss in further detail.

“Hi Peter,

Thanks for following up. I would like to let you know that you knocked it out of the park. Everything was as you said it would be and you delivered well within my requirements for time. We will be forwarding all of our feritscope units to your facility for recertification from here on. Thanks for your help.

Yours truly,
