Australia owned and operated

Andre was born in Australia and moved to the Netherlands at the age of 2.  In 1997 he backpacked and worked his way around Australia for one year. It has been his dream ever since to move back to his home country and start his own company.

After nearly two decades with Cordstrap in Europe, the USA and Asia, Cordstrap offered him the opportunity to an exclusive partnership in Australia; thus Cargo Restraint Systems Pty Ltd was founded.
