Our History

At Ausco we've been constructing, transporting and installing modular buildings for over 60 years.  We're proud to have been a part of numerous nation-building and smaller scale projects alike.  Here are a few notable events from our past...


1961 marked the establishment of the business that became Ausco, as the Australian subsidiary of the Alberta Trailer Company broke ground on a 6,300m2 factory in Adelaide, South Australia.


Exiting Australia to Focus on their North American business, the business’ branding was changed to Ausco and sold in 1986, initially to Fortuna of New Zealand before ultimately becoming a part of the the Algeco group in 2011.


Ausco Modular supplied buildings for the 2000 Sydney Olympics, including the accommodation blocks that served as the Athletes village.


Ausco Modular supplies buildings for Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project, in a major operation that involves the supply of several hundred modules supplied under strict quarantine conditions, to protect the biodiversity of Barrow Island.


Across all of Ausco’s production facilities, enough steel framing is used that if laid end-to-end, it would reach from Brisbane to Perth!


Modulaire purchases Ausco Modular who celebrates 60 years of business. We're proud to support the communities we work in.
