"We at the BSSA are very proud to be the Australasian distributor for the Ames family of products,” said Des Bickerton, a BSSA representative. “After experiencing these products and seeing what they could do in the US over 10 years ago, we knew we wanted to work with Ames' unique range of waterproofing solutions. Ames is the perfect solution for the climate down under."
