Our team can work with you to design, supply and deliver new bridges or refurbish your existing  assets with the experience of highly trained professionals.

Through Life Support

But what sets RATE apart from the competition is our customisation. We know there is no “one size fits all” option for airports. As a result, we customise RATE aerobridges to suit the needs of each customer, making us the ONE STOP SHOP for all of your aerobridge needs.

From the design stage to the finished product, we work closely with you to ensure every requirement is met.

Our Founder

RATE was born from the expertise of a passionate aviator and industrial electrician who wanted to offer a superior aerobridge solution and maintenance capability to Australian airports and airlines. At the core of his idea were the ideals of integrity, commitment, safety and value – core beliefs that our team continues to value today in every aspect of our work.

RATE evolved from its sister company, Indelec Industrial Electrics Pty Ltd in 1996, specialising in tailoring aerobridges for Australian airlines. Since then RATE has worked on aerobridges supplied by most global manufactures since the 1970s.
