We thought it was about time we introduced ourselves properly.
My name is Russell and Kap Industries is my business.
We are a husband and wife team based in Melbourne, Australia.
This business began because I used to race my WRX wagon in Perth. One of the requirements to race was that a fire extinguisher was within arms reach and securely fastened to the car. A friend of mine reeeeeally didn’t want to drill into his Subaru to race, and I didn’t want to either, so I manually crafted a bracket to fit to existing seat bolts under the front seat. Other race goers started asking if I could make one for their vehicle, as they too didn’t want to drill a hole in their car to fit a fire extinguisher in.
I used to make all the brackets by hand until eventually I realised I had a little niche market here.
One night, while watching a state of origin rugby match, a friend of mine (who is a web designer) thought it would be cool to start a website. ‘What should it be called?’ asked my mate, ‘Kap Industries‘ I replied, with a chuckle, mid sip of cold beer. And the rest is history!
Now, we send our brackets all over the world. We have a great following on social media and we have some amazing leads in regards to fitting out fleet vehicles and collaborations with other companies. We love that we are getting people out enjoying their cars on the track and protecting vehicles at work too.
My wife and I mostly work from home, with our little dog Noodle, who very much enjoys being part of the team, sleeping on our laps as we work or travelling with us to various car events. He’s like our little mascot.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, without you we wouldn’t be able to continue to do what we do! So thanks!Tags: company vehicles fire extinguisher fleet Performance cars protection Safety Vehicle fire
