In 1997, an inventor named Kerry Clark and engineer named David Hightower began to gather in Kerry's garage and brainstorm ways to start their own company. What initially started out as a dream became a reality in 1998 when they relocated from San Diego, CA to Amptec's permanent home in the booming city of Austin, TX. From there, they hashed out a more extensive product line and customers around the globe began to take notice. In 2014 Kerry passed away, and sole ownership of Amptec was given to his daughter Sarah Clark, who is the current CEO.
