About ACO Australia

When you deal with ACO, you are dealing with a global company that thinks locally. You can expect an Australian made product designed and manufactured to Australian requirements fully backed by Australian based customer and technical support teams.

ACO is an Acronym for Ahlmann Company. The Ahlmann family started ACO and still owns it today.

In the early 1970s, ACO pioneered the development of a modular approach to channel drainage systems made from durable polymer concrete. In 1972, ACO set up a company in Switzerland, followed by France in 1976 and the US in 1978 and then Australia in 1988. Since then, the ACO Group has expanded globally in more than 47 countries (Europe, America, Asia, Australia, Africa) and 37 production sites in 18 countries with 5,200 employees worldwide. Our yearly sales are now over 1 billion euro.
