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 Classic Caravan Repair Centre based in Melbourne, Australia.
Due to the success of the Repair Centre, it was fitting that the business would be restructured and a separate wholesale business would be launched. Camec (an acronym for Caravan and Marine Equipment Company) was born.
Camec expanded their operations throughout 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.
Camec acquired their main competitor at the time – Caraparts. With this acquisition, they added an RV window, door and hatch manufacturing plant and a Queensland based sales and distribution facility to our portfolio. This allowed them to expand to a national operation.
Camec was acquired by Fleetwood, a publicly listed Australian company. Caravan Parts of Western Australia – a Fleetwood subsidiary – was integrated into the Camec brand, providing us with a Western Australian facility.
We expanded into New Zealaned in 2001 with the purchase of Serada, the country’s leading RV and marine components supplier. Further Australian expansion occurred in 2003 with the addition of our main competitor in New South Wales – Car-Van.
Camec now employs more than 300 people at our facilities in Dandenong South (Victoria), Archerfield (Queensland), Caringbah (New South Wales), Welshpool (Western Australia) and Auckland (New Zealand).
We import and distribute many leading products to the RV and marine industries, and have built many strong and lasting relationships with suppliers around the world. We are undoubtedly the largest supplier of RV and caravan components to all segments throughout Australia and New Zealand.
