Garage since 1946


Founded in May 1946 by ex MG Racing mechanic Harry Camp and trading from one section of an out building at the abattoir in Providence, was the humble beginnings of a motor trade dynasty.

Having moved back to wife Eleanors home town with their three children after a career taking them all over the country, it was decided the time was right to start H Camp & Sons Dennis would soon be returning from his National Service.

It didnt take very long before the partnership was able to take over the entire site in Providence and Providence Garage was born.

Sadly Harry died in 1973 but Dennis carried on in his quiet unassuming style continuing to cater for his well established and cared for customers. Having never married it was left to his sister (and secretary) Doreen to supply the next generation of mechanics. In 1974 Doreens son Duncan joined the firm but only stayed for one year as he moved on to take up a full apprenticeship in the Ford Motor Company network.

It was 1979 when Doreens younger son (Dennis' youngest nephew) Scott came onto the scene. Then in 1988 Duncan once again returned, having completed 14 years learning the manufacturers perspective. Slowly but surely the business continued to evolve.

Duncan divided his time between Providence Garage and contract work all over Europe for Ford, Dennis semi retired in 1994 and sadly died a year later, the two brothers, basing their ethos on Harry and Dennis caring obliging ways took the company forward.

In 2000 they opened Protech MOT & Service Centre in Springfield Road, in 2003, an offer was made to develop the Providence site to the benefit of the whole family and enabled Scott & Duncan to make major improvements to Protech, move everything to Springfield road and create H Camp & Sons latest incarnation PROVIDENCE PROTECH.
