In 1969, Camatic Seating was contracted to supply steel work, aluminum castings and the mechanised tilt systems for the Sydney Opera House. This contract announced Camatic Seating’s arrival in the public seating industry. Successful involvement in such a prestigious and demanding assignment meant a natural progression to cinema, auditorium and stadium seating.

Camatic Seating renewed its association with the Opera House some 20 years later when it won the contract to restore and refurbish the venue’s seating in 1991.

As the Sydney Opera House could not afford any interruptions to its heavily booked schedule, seats were removed over a period of time. The white birch timber was stripped and repolished, the foam cushions replaced or reupholstered and every detail of the seats were restored to their original condition.

Camatic Seating continues to maintain an ongoing relationship with the Sydney Opera House, having been asked to return in 2007 to provide further expert refurbishment.

Camatic Seating is proud to have enhanced the overall experience for patrons attending this iconic cultural landmark.

"The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation."
