Mayor Tom Tate excited for the future of the Yatala Enterprise Area

The Yatala Enterprise Area (YEA) has received another employment boost, with an international company setting up headquarters in the area.

More than 150 Gold Coasters have scored work at the modern manufacturing, design and supply facility – ‘ATCO’.

The Canadian company is said to be famous for its site offices and demountables, which they supply worldwide.


The family run business employs nearly 7,000 people worldwide and has an annual turnover of $22 billion.

The facility is now in full swing, producing and supplying products across the country and overseas from their new Gold Coast headquarters.

Mayor Tom Tate says the move is a giant boost for the YEA, which now employs an estimated 10,000 people.

“When you have over 10,000 jobs created in the area, it’s nice because a lot of the employees will be living around that area and it’s only a short travel to the Yatala Enterprise Area.

“The idea that working community goes hand in hand with light manufacturing… I think we got this one right,” Mayor Tate said.
