started in 1981 with Arthur Heritage as the sole proprietor.
Tool making, rifle safes and general engineering paid the bills.
In 1986 his eldest son, Joe, joined and together they tackled
new projects and ideas. They started making springs and clips
as well as the tooling necessary to produce them. Multi-stage
pneumatic presses unique to the aluminium industry followed
as well as the development of the Camtac Roller. The Roller
was patented in 1991.
All the tooling was produced in house. About the same time the
Camtac Tracking Valve was developed and since then thousands
of these valves serve the mining, sewage and paper industry
with their robustness and simplicity.
Guy, Arthur's youngest son, joined in 1992. The Camtac Spraybar
started out in HDPE but very soon the material's limitations
gave way to the development of the stainless steel Spraybar.
Most of the Spraybar's were exported to Australia. In 2005 an
oscillating Spraybar was developed for a local paper mill. The
simplicity of the control system made it an ideal retrofit for
the original equipment. The control system on its own is now
being developed to replace the existing electronic and mechanical
Alongside these exciting developments new springs and clips
are being produced.
