Who we are
The Camp King Industries brand was developed late in 2016. The brand operates as part of the Ausmetal Engineering entity. Ausmetal Engineering is a multi award winning sheetmetal business based in Brisbane, owned by Lucas Schubring and Sarah Wilson.
Ausmetal Engineering has been operating since 2013.
Lucas and Sarah both love camping and the 4wd industry. Lucas grew up watching his father who was a canvas upholster making hard top canopies. He always had the idea to one day make his own canopies!
Fast forward to 2015, he thought he would put that plan into action. Our neighbour at that time was a canvas manufacturer, so the plan to start making hard top canopies began. We quickly started getting requests for full aluminium canopies and trays.
The idea for a 4wd accessory brand was planted.
In January 2016 we were on our way back from a camping trip at Fraser island with our 3 kids when we first introduced the brand and our vision to everyone else!
The brand grew interest throughout 2016 and into 2017, along with our eagerness to expand our product range.
Fast forward to 2020……….. We are have a well known product range, our products are being showcased on a global platform and we have bases throughout Australia and the world.
We are so very proud of his brand! We are just as passionate about it today as we were when we first started.
