About Us

AttGuard was established in 2011 when Bowman’s Asbestos Removal Equipment (B.A.R.E.) was purchased by Paul Attard of Attard Sheet Metal. John Bowman began manufacturing his Asbestos Removal Equipment in Sydney in the 1970’s and had relocated to Casino, in northern New South Wales in the late 1990’s. The B.A.R.E. equipment has been an industry standard for many decades in Australia.
