ATCO Structures & Logistics, provider of quality modular building solutions, opened a custom-built manufacturing plant and hire yard facility on the Gold Coast, Queensland. The state-of-the-art factory is the latest in a series of new and modern ATCO facilities, including plants in Perth and Santiago, Chile, which provide the most advanced manufacturing capabilities in the industry, with access to the world’s fastest-growing markets.
ATCO Structures & Logistics is a pioneer in the modular construction industry, with projects on five continents and manufacturing facilities in Canada, the United States, and Australia.

The new facility will manufacture a wide range of modular products including classrooms, libraries, hospitals, construction offices, crib rooms, and sporting amenities. Located in the Yatala Enterprise area, the largest zoned industrial land area and the leading industrial precinct on the Gold Coast, the site is of high strategic value.
With the latest modern facility, company intends to fulfill customer needs
Michael Clennett, ATCO’s Managing Director, Structures & Logistics stated, “Our new manufacturing facility will complement existing plants in Victoria and Western Australia, providing fantastic coverage for the growing demand of our products and services across Australia and Oceania. By creating an expanded modern facility, we will be able to meet the needs of our customers in traditional markets such as mining and construction, and service emerging markets within the health, education, justice, and commercial sectors.” He added, “We specifically chose the site for its proximity and access to distribution networks including road, rail and port as well as the capacity to draw on an established supply chain infrastructure and workforce.”
ATCO’s newest modular manufacturing operation in Australia will service operations across North, Central and South East Queensland, as well as Newcastle and Sydney in New South Wales and, is expected to provide ongoing employment for over 150 people.
