ATL started out in 2007 in Christchurch as Automated Technologies. With two electricians and a passion for automation, a company was born!

The two quickly found themselves in high demand and expanding. Since then, ATL has found it's electrical division skyrocket, with heat pumps and security divisions being founded alongside. 

These days you'll find 30 multi-disciplined staff working on residential, commercial and industrial sites.

Our fearless leaders have also branched out into new business ventures, which are complimentary of the work ATL Electrical are best at.

Brett and Gary are very hands-on with all three businesses.

Brett is the managing director of ATL. As well as overseeing the day-to-day running of ATL, you will also find him head down working on a project or out on-site. Brett has an ambitious plan for ATL, so keep your eyes peeled for where we pop up next. 

Gary has shifted focus to growing the Onfarm brands. As director of both businesses, Gary splits his time between New Zealand, Australia, the US and any other country with a dairy industry.

Work was recently completed at ATL's Christchurch headquarters.
With 30 staff at ATL and 16 others in our sister companies, the cramped office and workshop weren't cutting the mustard. 

The existing office inside of the workshop was demolished to make way for a new showroom, office, toilet block, cafeteria and sneaky upstairs bar. 

Onfarm Data moved into the workshop and office next door. Giving them some breathing room and space to set up their own production line. 

Onfarm Solutions and ATL have split the workshop and office down the middle. An open-plan office ensures there are no communication barriers.

Work on our new base was completed by the talented team at Avon Dickie Construction.
