2015 marks ATL Composites 35th anniversary as a formulator of high performance epoxy resins and supplier of advanced structural materials to the Australian and Asian composites industries.
Initially established in New Zealand in 1977 by Arnie Duckworth and Chris Timms to manufacture WEST SYSTEM® epoxy products for the Asia Pacific region, under licence to Gougeon Brothers Inc, USA, ATL Composites expanded by opening a second facility in Sydney in 1980 to service the Australian professional and amateur boatbuilding market.
Today, with a manufacturing facility in Queensland, ATL Composites holds a strong and successful position as an epoxy formulator and continues to be a leading supplier to the high performance yachting market. Years of practical experience and knowledge in the performance of composite materials has seen us diversify into other industries where there is also a demand for lighter, stronger, stiffer, more durable structures. Composite materials and engineering services are being provided for the manufacture of commercial ferries, road and rail transportation, industrial and architectural applications, resulting in improved performance and reduced production time, while specifically formulated liquid and filled epoxy systems are now supplied into the specialised fields of industrial tooling, electrical encapsulation, mining and automotive applications.
As a boutique Australian owned and operated company, with an experienced and dedicated technical team, we pride ourselves on an inherent flexibility and client commitment. We have enjoyed steady expansion in Australia, and overseas interest in our products has resulted in a strong distribution network throughout Asia.
