Each newly designed seat is sculptured to the comfort specifications in SAE-J826 for proper seating reference points (SRP) and seat belt fit. Engineering is performed through skilled craftsmanship and technological "Auto Cad" computer aided design. This assures that our products are engineered for lasting comfort, function and durability. Master pattern makers tend to every detail with the latest comfort and fashionable styling. The steel frame seat or sofa structures are crafted to withstand almost any environment, as they are Lifetime Warranted. Kustom Fit has always been known as the leading innovator in seat frame design. We are proud to have been awarded 28 US Patents over the years for a multitude of seating inventions.
Our facilities utilize over 90.000 square feet of manufacturing space. The company employs 200 team-driven employees who care about our customers' expectations. Both talent and experience allow the company to produce over 300 different types of seating or furniture products. Manufacturing processes are steel frame metal fabrication, welding, foam fabrication, foam molding, fabric cutting, sewing, upholstery, wood and assembly. This integration gives us complete control of our manufacturing process because they are performed in-house. Most of our competition merely assemble sub-contracted parts or offer vehicle seating as sideline to a home furniture or other business.
Kustom Fit supplies custom seating, furniture, and interior accessories for more vehicle types that any other seating company. The success of our engineering and design innovations has expanded the company into many diversified markets. Our market now total eight including Recreational Vehicles, Heavy Trucks, Van Pick Up-Suburban Conversions, Commuter Vans, Transit Buses, Specialty Vehicles such as Jeeps and Steelpower 24/7 office chairs. Moving forward in eight directions in challenging but very rewarding. There is a lot of crossover between each that benefits one another. For example, the durability factors used in our Heavy Truck Seating can be applied to all seating products we manufacture. The functional sofa beds and dinettes we make for motor homes can be applied to Heavy Truck Sleeper applications. An electronic footrest designed for a truck company's sleeper was adapted to motor home passenger seats. Our motor home 'SAFERIDE' Integrated Seat and Seat Belt System will eventually be transposed into a Heavy Truck seat. This multitude of market experience has created an edge with the competition for Kustom Fit.
Kustom Fit is more than just another seating company. We offer improved comfort and functionality adding to the consumer's enjoyment or lifestyle. The company is particularly diverse, serving eight different market types with as many specific needs. This accomplishment is truly remarkable and a tribute in itself to the owners and management of the company. It is Kustom Fit's objective to grow and expand each of these markets with continued product innovations that offer complete customer satisfaction. The success of our 'SAFERIDE' Integrated Seat and Seat Belt System Seats in Luxury Motor Homes, Stylish Transit Bus Seating, and larger 'Big Daddy' seats for the Trucking Industry are some most recent examples of this. In the months and years ahead, there will be many more advances and significant growth associated with the Kustom Fit organization. These continuous improvement efforts will have a major impact on each industry. The unsurpassed vision that comes form Kustom Fit will continue to be the inspirational leader for each market and their customer needs.
