RETROLOOMS started in 1992 as D+A Autoelectrical, a part time business started by Darren and Anette. It began in their garage with the wiring of racecars, caravans, boats and custom cars.The business continued part time until 2005 when Darren took a redundancy package from his ‘day job’ and with the ‘part-time’ business now built to a stage where the garage was in no way large enough due to the addition of wiring custom-built work and breakdown assistant vehicles, a new premises was sought.In 2006, the business moved into a factory on Cambro Rd. Clayton, and D+A Autoelectrical now became RETROLOOMS. Staying there for 3 years till a more permanent factory was located, on June 30th 2009, Retrolooms moved (right around the corner from Cambro Rd.) to its present location at 42 Renver Road Clayton and has now grown to accommodate 4 additional staff members.With the permanency of the Renver Rd. premises, the location specially consists of a large wide secured driveway beside the factory which can accommodate 1 or 2 of the largest sized motor homes, caravans or 5th wheelers available. It also allows customers to either park early in the morning or late in the evening alleviating the need for them to drive to (or from) the factory when traffic is heavy.
As the name indicates, Retrolooms manufacture and rebuild a large range of low volume wiring looms for anything from custom cars, work vehicle emergency lighting & work lighting , stationary engines, campers and motor homes. In addition to the wiring looms, Retrolooms also fit out emergency vehicles, install diesel heaters and install motor home/caravan automatic satellite systems.
Retrolooms has in the last few years been installing custom solar inverter power systems in recreational vehicles and food/coffee vans.
Our future direction is to provide a range of alternative powered RV products as in water and space heaters, waste disposal and highly efficient battery systems
