Kustom Krates is owned by Mark Natinsky and is located just outside of Austin, Texas. We provide Canine crates and equipment boxes to the Police K9 world and many Dog Sport enthusiasts.
Our company was started in 1999 because of our need to outfit our Dog Van with a custom four dog crate set up. It was then we discovered that not all aluminum crates are alike! We looked long and hard and could not find the quality of product in a custom build that we were looking for. Mostly what we saw were crates made out of thin metal with cheap components. I am a perfectionist, and what I saw was nothing compared to what I wanted.
Being a fabricator and welder, I chose to design and build my own set up. Almost immediately other dog people saw my crates and began asking if I could build them a set. Before long I was building crates "part time" in addition to my full time sales job. Soon enough, part time could not keep up with business and I now have the dream job that people always talk about, doing what I love.
The rest is history.
