Our History: A Legacy of Precision and Quality


Established in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, Cameron Machine has been a beacon of quality and precision for over four decades. As a family-owned and operated business, we are proud to carry forward a tradition of excellence that spans three generations.

1967 – Inception:

Cameron Machine was founded by Porter Cameron and his son Pat Cameron at 813 S. Sherman Street in Richardson. From humble beginnings, our commitment to quality craftsmanship laid the foundation for our enduring success.

1970s – Growth and Expansion:

In the 1970s, under the solid leadership of Pat Cameron and the expertise of Ben Wright as the shop’s foreman, Cameron Machine flourished. In 1971, we moved to a larger facility at 404 N. Bowser in Richardson, marking the beginning of a period of growth and innovation.

1980s – Embracing Technology and Employee Welfare:

In 1980, Cameron Machine made a significant investment in technology with the purchase of our first CNC machine. Alongside technological advancements, we prioritized the well-being of our employees by offering healthcare coverage, a tradition we proudly continue today.

1990s – Investing in Quality Assurance:

As the industry evolved, so did we. In 1993, we acquired our first coordinated measuring machine, enhancing our capabilities in quality assurance and ensuring that every part leaving our facility met the highest standards of precision.

2000s – Expansion and Leadership Transition:

In the early 2000s, Cameron Machine underwent significant expansion, adding new CNC machine centers and expanding our facility to accommodate growth. In 2007, Christi Cameron, daughter of Pat Cameron, assumed the reins of day-to-day operations, ushering in a new era of leadership.
