About Us

Real life know-how.

Diligently serving local merchant and hardware stores for many years, Willie Auld is woven into the very fabric of the business and continues to bring his practical experience, knowledge and humour to the ATKO business. If you ask him – he will tell you simply it’s about making a living for his family - we weren’t built overnight and that’s a good thing. From tough financial times to today’s success it is resilience that matters, an attitude that’s been passed on to his two sons Gary and Brendan who now head up the business. In a world dominated by big box chains and endless new product ranges there is still a strong need for well stocked local stores. Serving those businesses and communities is ATKO, supplying and sorting any problems behind the scenes. Family run, reliable, and ready to help out. Always.

Our customers are at the heart of our business.

As a family run business we like to serve our customers well and that means not being passed around or overlooked. We give our customers the best reliable experience we can and sometimes it really is the small things that matter. At ATKO we’re proud to support that independent network of businesses. Our years of working hands on and face to face means when it comes to products and selections we can give you great practical advice and industry knowledge that helps you sell and promote products. In a changing market we look for fresh products and innovative ideas that will interest your customers. We build and invest in relationships that aren't about the pennies.
