About Us

(ATS Group) ATS Nets & Ropes Pty Limited is proudly a wholly Australian owned company.

Starting from its modest beginnings it was established in 1980 supplying specialized netting

and trawler gear in Northern NSW and South East Queensland.  In 1985 ATS opened a small

office at Clontarf on the Redcliffe Peninsula.  Over a period of time ATS product range

increased requiring the need for larger premises and more staff, the first move was to Kippa-

Ring and then on to again a larger property this is still used to this Day.

warehousing at Clontarf.  Which is now the head office and main distribution centre for ATS
