In 1985, at a time when the catalytic converter industry was in its infancy, Camet Co. was founded on a new catalytic technology invented by Dr. William Retallick. Camet Co. created, developed and manufactured new emission control products made from metal foils with catalytic coatings. Over fifteen years, Camet Co. grew into a profitable business with sales approaching twenty-five million dollars per year.
Between 1985 and 2000, three Camet Co. team members – Dr. William B. Retallick, founder Richard Cornelison and William Whittenberger – achieved international recognition in the catalytic converter industry as experts in catalysis, metal foil substrate design, and the invention and commercialization of superior catalyzed metal substrate products for catalytic air pollution clean up. In 2001, these three individuals created Catacel Corp.
Catacel was founded to use crossover technology from the predecessor Camet business to create and commercialize new metal substrate products not related to exhaust treatment. Since then, Catacel has developed and commercialized numerous solutions for fuel cell, hydrogen and other industries.
The company has created a strong research and development department that continues to develop new products to meet customer needs. Catacel’s sales team is actively seeking customers in a variety of industries where we can add value for those needing catalytic solutions that involve high temperatures, heat transfer or reforming.
