Camec’s origins date back to 1963 when founder Kevin O’Brien identified the need for a specialised caravan repair business to service the growing caravan tourism industry. His vision led to the creation of the service operation Classic Caravan Repair Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Working closely with caravan manufacturers, caravan dealers, hirers and leading caravan insurance companies of that period this exclusive business grew rapidly.
Because of the success of Classic as a retail and repair operation, it was then deemed expedient to structure and launch a separate wholesale business. In 1972, Camec was born. Camec is an acronym for Caravan And Marine Equipment Company.
Camec expanded its operations during the late 1980s through the purchase of an aluminium roll forming plant, the purchase of tooling for caravan water tank production and the introduction of innovative and alternative products from overseas suppliers for the local market.
Camec now employs over 300 people in its facilities at Dandenong South in Victoria, Archerfield in Queensland, Caringbah in New South Wales, Welshpool in Western Australia and Auckland in New Zealand.
Camec is undoubtedly the largest supplier of RV and caravan components and accessories to all segments of the RV and caravan industries throughout Australia and New Zealand.
