A long-held desire to build Australia’s best campers, led award-winning sheet metal fabricator Lucas Schubring to launch Camp King Industries.
Camp King Industries, as a brand, might only have been born in 2016 but it’s been a seed in our founder, Lucas Schubring’s brain since he was a kid watching his father build hardtop campers. That seed stayed even as Lucas and his partner, Sarah Wilson, launched their award-winning sheet metal fabrication business (aus Metal Fabrication) back in 2013.
Both keen campers, the decision to launch Camp King Industries came in 2015 when a new business opened up next door. It was a canvas maker and the gentle nudge that Lucas and Sarah needed to realise Lucas’ long-held dream of building campers. Camp King Industries was born.
The first products to roll out were hardtop roof top tents quickly followed by aluminium canopies and trays, thanks to strong demand from consumers after Australian Made quality. The brand continues to grow to this day both locally and internationally.
What makes a Camp King Canopy, Ute Tray or Roof Top Tent the best?
Simple. It’s Australian Made. Certified. And that’s because all of us here at Camp King are passionate about supporting Aussie businesses and our local communities, but it’s also because of the superior quality control you get with local manufacturers.
All of the components we use are made here and supplied by Australian-owned businesses, our awning poles, mattresses and canvas for our tub and roof top tents is all Australian Made. And we always use Australian Made BlueScope steel.
While it might be cheaper to buy components or manufacture offshore, here at Camp King we believe in supporting local communities and Australian businesses. More than that, we believe the craftspeople we work with and the materials we use are the best in the world.
We will always manufacture our products here in Australia and that’s why we’re proud to be certified Australian Made.
