ACO Australia

ACO Polycrete Pty Ltd will celebrate 20 years of manufacturing in Australia in August this year and is also celebrating 10 years of operating from their manufacturing facility at Old Bathurst Road, Emu Plains.

Since relocating from Northmead to Emu Plains in 2004, ACO has continued to invest and improve its production and manufacturing capabilities. The latest improvement is a state of the art steel production facility focusing on stainless steel production, which will increase the workforce to more than 90 people at their Emu Plains facility.

From the initial start-up production of small stainless steel products, ACO Polycrete has enhanced its capabilities to assemble cast iron multipart access covers in 2008 and added the capabilities to manufacture cable and electrical pits. A plastics production facility was added in 2011 and in 2013 upgraded the polymer concrete production line.

This year, ACO will increase its production capabilities to become a professional manufacturer of stainless steel and mild steel products for the building and construction industries in Australia and their export markets.

ACO is a recognised leader in the supply of civil building and construction products and has an extensive range of niche products which include: polymer concrete trench drainage, stormwater pits, electrical and communication pits, utility ducting, steel, cast iron and plastic access covers, multipart access cover systems, light oil separators and geocellular stormwater management systems.

The expansion of the steel production facility will enable ACO to increase its range of niche building drainage products to include roof and floor drains, stainless steel gullies, balcony drainage, bathroom drainage, industrial stainless steel drainage, hygienic stainless steel drainage systems, stainless steel pipe systems and grease separators.

Established in 1946 in Germany, the ACO Group operates on a global basis through its subsidiaries and manufacturing facilities in 28 countries in Oceania, North America, Europe and Asia and employs over 3500 people worldwide.

ACO in Australia trades as ACO Polycrete Pty Ltd. The company is headquarters is at Emu Plains and has offices and distribution outlets throughout Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the South Pacific.

ACO’s system chain: ‘collect’, ‘clean’, ‘hold’ and ‘release’ promotes the company’s product solutions for all aspects of the water management cycle for the world’s ever changing environmental conditions.

  • Liquids are ‘collected’ as quickly and completely as possible to provide comfort, protection and safety for people, buildings and traffic routes.
  • The collected liquids are treated and ‘cleaned’ using integrated physical, chemical or biological processes to ensure our waterways and sewers are kept free from pollutants. This part of the ACO system chain creates the conditions for recycling and sustainable use.
  • Containers, barriers and valves ensure that liquids are ‘held’ within the drainage system where they can be properly controlled. This part of the ACO system chain provides protection and safety for extreme situations, such as heavy rain, flooding or the handling of hazardous liquids.
  • Pumps, lifting plant and pipe systems transfer and ‘release’ the collected and treated water into downstream systems. This part of the ACO system chain transfers the collected, treated and controlled liquid to areas for further treatment, re-use or release.

ACO is the world leader in drainage technology and recognises that extreme weather events must be counteracted by more complex and sophisticated drainage concepts. ACO achieves this with intelligent system solutions which have a dual purpose: protecting people from water, and water from people.
