Alamo Drafhouse Cinema, USA
Our relationship with Camatic Seating begins of course with their exceptional chairs. What forges a vendor relationship, however, is not just the product, but the service. What happens when we are in a jam and need immediate help? The entire team at Camatic Seating has gone the extra mile time and again to ensure our projects stay on track. That is why we continue to return and are proud to call them our partners.

It is with great interest that we at the M.C.G. hear you have submitted a seating package for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Stadium. In a way, it would be some consolation if Melbourne became part of the 1996 games, which for a while we had visions of hosting.
Although we missed out on the games we are very pleased to have gained our new Southern Stand. It has turned out to be at least equal to and in most cases better than anything we saw during our worldwide inspection of grandstands and seating installations.
As you are aware, Mr Samaranch was guest to the Melbourne Cricket Club last Friday, before moving on to Sydney. His appraisal of our new 40,000 seat stand and of the stadium, in general, was of the highest order and most gratifying for those, including Camatic, who worked so hard in achieving it.
We commend you on your seating installation and wish you well on this your latest venture.

Thank you for meeting the “Seibu” Project deadlines. Our clients and their architects are very pleased with the way you’ve responded in the fast track development and delivery of this new seating program.
Already we have had several architects specifying this seat for forthcoming projects. The Camatic product with the gravity tilt mechanism has been embraced by the Tokyo Design Community, in preference to the traditional spring mechanism.
The news of our joint venture, winning the project from Kotobuki, will strategically align us with many opportunities, especially in the light of your flexibility to meet the Asian dimensions with a tailor-made product, available in volume quantity production runs.
Also, we wish Camatic success with your effort to gain the seating contract for the Atlanta Olympic Games Stadium venue. Success in Atlanta will reflect well on our strategy to obtain seating contracts for the Winter Olympic Venues in Japan.
Amseco wishes to thank your design team for tireless dedication and your production team for the high quality of the new Series 2400 seat. If Amseco can be of further assistance in recommending your products, please contact the undersigned.
Amseco looks forward to a long and prosperous future with Camatic.

Brisbane Broncos, Australia
The ANZ stadium is owned and managed by the Brisbane City Council, selected Camatic’s polypropylene seating through a public tendering process for the extensive refurbishment program in 1993.
The product selected (8,000 Hille Side Shells and 2,000 Armshell seats), constructed in our Eastern and Western stands are well suited within the conditions and usage of each stand. They have performed well, with excellent colour retention and surface conditions under our tropical climate, with negligible maintenance since their installation 1993.
Camatic’s service both during construction and after-sales service has been exemplary.
We would recommend the Camatic Stadium seating for high volume use Stadiums for similar conditions and usage.

Atlanta Stadium Constructors, USA
We wish to commend Camatic Pty Ltd on a job well done. They manufactured and installed over 87,0permanentent ADA and temporary seats for the Olympic Stadium.
Our decision-making team had initial reservations about working with this leading Australian seating company, as we perceived their distant location would be a disadvantage. However, the Camatic team showed us from the beginning that they could more than meet our design brief, our demanding product criteria, difficult schedules and all with a tight budget and time constraints. We were also reassured to discover they had the experience on other offshore stadium seating contracts in the Pacific Rim countries.
We were particularly pleased with their ability to accommodate our many on-going changes to product needs and ongoing on-site configurations that arose during the later stages of the stadium configuration.
The 50,000 permanent seats which will remain for the revamped home of the Atlanta Braves are a true nostalgic baseball slatted style, incorporating state-of-the-art seating technology, unique design features and providing a high level of comfort.
We were impressed with their ADA seating. The Camatic team produced a number of innovative solutions, that set new high standards for disabled seating in the USA.
In summary, we found working with the Camatic team a pleasure. we thank Camatic for their total commitment and cooperation, contributing to the success of the 1996 Olympic Games.

Atlanta Stadium Design Team, USA
The Atlanta Stadium Design Team (ASDT) wishes to commend Camatic Pty. Ltd. on a job well done. Under extremely tight deadlines, they manufactured and installed over 87,000 permanent, ADA and temporary seats for the Atlanta Olympic Stadium, and are a part of the legacy of the centrepiece of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. As the previous site for Opening & Closing Ceremonies and the Track & Field events, the Atlanta Olympic Stadium has just completed its transformation into a 48,000 seat baseball stadium and permanent home of the Atlanta Braves National League baseball team.
Our Design Team had initial reservations about working with this leading Australian seating company due to their distant location. ASDT was reassured to discover Camatic had the experience of other offshore stadium seating contracts in the Pacific Rim countries.
Furthermore, the Camatic Team proved from the beginning that they could more than meet our design program, as well as, meet our demanding product criteria. They worked within the Atlanta Stadium Constructor’s aggressive installation schedules while staying within the tight budget and time constraints put forth by the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games (ACOG).
As the stadium progressed, ASDT was pleased with Camatic’s efficiency in accommodating ACOG’s and the Atlanta Braves’ continuously changing stadium seating requirements. They also handled the on-site seating plan reconfigurations that occurred during construction with great efficiency.
The 48,000 permanent seats, which remain for the reconfigured home of the Atlanta Braves, are a nostalgic baseball slatted style. They incorporate innovative seating technology, unique design features and provide a high level of spectator seating comfort.
The creative design of their 31,000 temporary seats harmonized perfectly with permanent seating and also provided exceptional flexibility to fulfil changing seating plans as ACOG finalized their ticketing plans. These one-piece seats featured a moulded Olympic symbol that enhanced their unique appearance.
We were also very pleased with the creativity of Camatic’s ADA seating design. In fact, the Camatic Team produced a number of innovative solutions which set new high standards for disabled seating in the U.S.A.
In conclusion, we found our experience working with the Camatic Team a pleasure. Their performance exceeded ASDT’s demands and expectations.
We thank Camatic for their total team commitment and cooperation and for greatly contributing to the success of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

First and Goal Incorporated, USA
As the new Stadium approaches completion, I am writing to express the immense satisfaction of both First and Goal Inc. and the Seattle Seahawks for the Camatic seating installation. The seating selection and installation process have been a major contributor to the excitement generated in Seattle toward the opening of the Facility in August this year.
We are most satisfied with our selection of the Quantum seats for General and Charter seating, especially the high back fully padded 24-inch wide features Quantum chairs provide for the Club seating accommodation. The selection of the Activa chair for the Suites has also proven to add value and comfort and therefore ensures our Suite Patrons will be the most comfortable in the National Football League.
As you well know, seating is such a major component of fan comfort and acceptance in any new Stadium and the Seattle fans have already embraced the enjoyment level provided by the Quantum chairs. Our owner, Mr. Paul Allen, recently toured the Facility and was highly commendable of both the Quantum and Activa chairs.
The ease of chair installation has also enabled our contractor Turner Construction to achieve better than anticipated installation and productivity rates for seating. This has assisted the Seahawks with their sales programs during construction at all levels of seating selection.
First and Goal Inc. and the Seattle Seahawks congratulate Camatic on this successful installation. You have clearly shown that our selection of both the Quantum and Activa chairs is indeed befitting of the goals for the Stadium Project.
We look forward to seeing you both on Opening Day!

This letter is a bit late in getting to you but I did very much want you to have it. As the Project Manager for the US$2.2 million stadium improvements projects, we had the opportunity to work with many different contractors and material suppliers. Of all those that we worked with we were most appreciative of the attention, service and most of all, cooperation was given by yourself and Camatic seating. In every case, you both far exceeded all expectations that we had for both product and performance. The task of adding nearly 40,000 seats in the middle of the L.A. Galaxy, Major League Soccer season was no easy one. In addition to twenty soccer games, several other major events such as the 4th of July celebration and the Lilith Fair concert added to the extreme complexity of the seating of this National Landmark stadium. In addition, the owner requested a design change, which required the width of the seats and back to be increased after some 5,500 seats had already been installed. Even with all of these challenges, the stadium was ready for the first UCLA football game on September 12th, a true test of the quality and commitment we received from Camatic Seating and the Ainslie Company.
It is our firm belief that the Camatic stadium chair is the finest design and manufacturing quality that is obtainable in today’s market place. The care and attention to detail that was given to the Rose Bowl Stadium Chair are second to none. In a stadium as old as the Rose Bowl, there are many inherent problems. The custom designed seats provided a solution to overcome nearly all of the physical difficulties. Camatic Seating was the only manufacturer that was willing to address the issues and build a seat that would work well in the 1920’s landmark structure. An accomplishment that is of itself amazing.
In closing, I would again like to thank Camatic Seating and the Ainslie Company for a very difficult job that was very well done. I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again sometime in the future.

This is to confirm that the following recommendations from our designers and subsequent trialling on site during the 2007 Championships against competitor seating, the All England Lawn Tennis Club elected to install all new Camatic Quantum seats in our newly refurbished (and re-roofed!) Centre Court and in our new Court 2; a total of approximately 19,000 seats.
Apart from the quality product, which on May 17th was very well received by a capacity 15,000 crowd at our Test Event for the new retractable roof, the input from Camatic from start to finish has been second to none; from first commercial discussions, through sampling and trials, shipping and technical support to final installation team on site, the service has been first class.

We specified the Clarity Concerto chair for a recent lecture theatre project at Newington College, Stanmore.
Camatic Pty Ltd was excellent to work with from sketch design to final installation of the chairs. They provided samples of the chair for the client to test out which was very useful.
During building construction, there were last-minute constraints which altered the lecture theatre seating layout and Camatic Pty Ltd was extremely accommodating and helped greatly in finding a resolution to the revised seating layout.
The Clarity Concerto chairs themselves are very comfortable to sit on and suit the lecture theatre aesthetic very well. There are a number of options to suit a range of uses, such as individual seat numbering, fold-out writing tablet and timber or upholstered outer face.
I highly recommend the Clarity Concerto chair and would specify it again without any hesitation.
