Campagna Corporation, also known as T-Rex Vehicles Inc., was founded in 1990 in the Province of Quebec, Canada. Campagna has acquired a reputation within the automotive industry since the development of the first T-Rex prototype in 1994. Campagna's founder Daniel Campagna has devoted more than 8 years to create the T-Rex, personally handcrafting the first vehicles. Since then, Campagna has gathered a creative team of technicians carrying the mission, the vision and the T-Rex heritage.
