Our History

Based in Murwillumbah, NSW we have a long and proud legacy of successfully servicing government, military, public and private utilities. Having worked with clients here in Australia and internationally since 1973.

The Australian RADIO TOWER History

The history of Australian Radio Towers all started in South Australia back in 1973. Starting as a small family business with the ambition, passion and commitment to be pioneers of our industry. Forty-seven years later, we’re still 100% family-owned and operated. With the same unwavering commitment to being at the forefront of innovative and progressive practice within the industry, made possible by our strong company culture and human centred approach to everything we do. 

In 1987 ART’s operational base moved to the Northern Territory, where we continued to operate for 15 years. During this time we learnt the true meaning of innovation, seeing us deliver products and services in some of the most challenging environments imaginable. Those experiences tested our creative thinking, innovative practices, quality of craftsmanship and workmanship, as well as our ability to really deliver customised and personalised solutions. All of which has continued to have a huge impact on our culture and the way we work as we continue to face the challenges of the future.

The Introduction of Manufacturing

The addition of our manufacturing facilities in 2003 added a new depth to our service delivery, allowing us to deliver every stage of our clients projects in-house. The experience we’ve gained has meant that by the time we started manufacturing, we had developed a comprehensive knowledge to enable us to produce more user-friendly designs and cost-effective solutions for our clients.

These days it’s not uncommon for our on-site experience to include helicopter and crane installations, weather monitoring solutions as well as manual gin pole and winch installations in some of the most remote and challenging environments Australia can throw at us. With a proud and proven history spanning 47 years the Australian Radio Towers family is well-positioned to serve you with an intimate knowledge and understanding of your project from start to finish.
