About Altapac

Newcastle's automotive accessory specialist

Our Beginnings

Altapac Services Pty. Ltd. was established in 1972 when its founder Paul “Pinky” Evans saw the opportunity to start the first automotive window tinting business on the east coast of Australia. After a quick growth period, Altapac moved to its current location along Park Avenue Kotara opposite the then Garden City shopping centre.

Since then Altapac has progressively expanded into providing all manner of automotive accessories. Altapac has always been at the forefront of innovation including the introduction of car phones during the eighties and mobile phones in the nineties. The mid-nineties saw Altapac develop a Computer cut window tinting software package to further enhance the efficiency and accuracy of its tinting process and maintain its position as the leaders in this field.

Altapac Today

Today the business mainly consists of its core product of flat glass and automotive tinting and has expanded its automotive theme to include a huge range of automotive accessories including Roof Racks, Car Alarms,  Car Care Products, Tow Bars, Cargo Barriers, Bull Bars, Paint Protection Films, Security Films, Anti-Graffiti Films and Nudge Bars. Recently the business has now further expanded into Paint Protection Films, Child Restraints, Van Fit Outs, and Vehicle Signage.

Altapac is still owned by the Evans family and is still committed to providing the best service, products and pricing to all ititsustomers.

Our Departments

Altapac has changed a bit over the years. We started off as window tinters and over the past 40 years have done almost everything, from Photocopier sales and repairs to being the regions largest Optus reseller. In the early 2000’s, Steve Evans, Paul’s son, recognised where our expertise was and built the Altapac around a smaller number of services which we do really, really well.

Altapac now has 6 departments which offers something for everyone.

  • Altapac Car & 4×4
  • Altapac Home & Commercial Tinting
  • Altapac Signage & Graphics
  • Altapac Online
  • AltaCut Window Tinting Software
  • Altapac Direct
