Here at East Coast Bullbars we would like to introduce to you our new OPERATIONS MANAGER – ADAM McINNES, who has played an integral role in assisting us to catch up on back orders and get back on track over the last few months.
Local to the Redcliffe peninsula for the past 20 years Adam settled here after embarking on a working holiday across the eastern states with his NZ born wife.
Adam is heavily involved in the local community and youth development with the Redcliffe Sea Snakes Junior Rugby Union Club where he coaches up and coming stars of the under 14’s. He also admits to reliving his youth every so often by throwing the boots on with the Demons, Veterans Rugby Union, club, (though he claims his best years on the field are yet to be seen).
Adam has two children who both are high achievers in the class room, and are proudly following in Dads footsteps on the sports field with both representing Redcliffe and Sunshine Coast in their respective sports ( Rugby Union and Netball).
Adam joins us with extensive skills and experience in transforming operations through Process Improvements, Compliance and developing high performance teams. He joins ECB after a lengthy tenure of 20 years with Wesfarmers Kleenheat Gas where he worked his way from the production floor through to supervisor’s roles and then into QLD Facility Manager and providing relief National Manager roles. Adam then stepped up as the National Process Improvement manager, where he was tasked with aligning and improving national operational processes across the four major production facilities located in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
After a short break away from Wesfarmers Kleenheat, Adam joined BLA (Mercury Australia) where he assisted in the business migration and the restructure of Australian and New Zealand Operations.
Passionate about operational compliance, including improving operational efficiencies, promoting standardisation and developing high performance teams, Adam is looking forward to the challenges ahead, enhancing ECB’s reputation as “World’s Best BullBar” manufacturer.
Great to have him on board.

The Kia Sorento is a great family-orientated 4WD, big and roomy enough to take the entire family on outback adventures. To ensure your vehicle, and it’s passengers, are protected in any environment or situation, ensure you have the best in frontal protection.
The ECB Big Tube ™ Bar is specifically engineered for the Kia Sorento. Manufactured from high tensile, structural grade alloys featuring a 76mm center tube. The bar also incorporates fully gusseted 63mm headlight tubes, with a tapered one-piece bumper and full width, braced Lower Protection Skirt. The Big Tube ™ Bar provides the ultimate in frontal vehicle protection.
The ECB 76mm Nudge Bar, for the Kia Sorento provides an excellent combination of bumper protection and sleek design. For protection from bumps and nudges around the city, look no further.
Designed in Australia, for our harsh Australian conditions, it will never rust or corrode.
When you’re looking for the best in vehicle protection, you can depend on the rugged, no compromise reliability of an ECB Big Tube™ Bar.
Now available in ECB’s Midi Tube style, as well as the traditional Big Tube™ Bar and Nudge Bar, this very stylish bar is manufactured from hi-tensile structural grade alloys, with a solid 76mm diameter tube with a 4.75mm wall thickness for incredible strength, providing the worlds best frontal protection for the iLoad & iMax.
This bar comes in a range of premium, low maintenance powder-coated finishes, as well as the ever-popular mirror polished alloy. When you need the best protection for the vehicle your livelihood depends on, insist on a genuine ECB Bar.
But don’t forget the new Midi Tube Bar.
Now being tested, the range of frontal protection for the new Ford Everest will soon be in production. Not only does the new range look fabulous, they also provide all the protection you need for your vehicle and that ever precious cargo, your family.
For the new Subaru Foresters with fog lights, Big Tube ™ Bar lower protection skirt has been modified to wrap around the existing factory fog lights ensuring normal operation of this accessory. All bars are being modified to suit the new Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and include the Type8 Bar, 76mm Nudge Bar and Series 2 Nudge Bar.
FORD RANGER (With sensors):
Ford has given the popular Ranger ute all new upgrades fior 2016, with styling and tech upgrades aimed at making upper-spec XLT and Wildtrak double cabs more attractive for families. For family buyers and recreational enthusiasts, Ford is first to bring safety features like lane departure warning, collision warning and radar cruise control to the light truck segment.
East Coast bullbars have met this challenge head on and have developed a full range of Big Tube™ Bars and and Nudge Bars to suit these vehicles.
AND THERE’S MORE TO COME.
