We had the good fortune of connecting with Austin O’Krinsky and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Austin, other than deciding to work for yourself, what was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?
I wanted this shop to be a one stop shop. I wanted it to be a place you could come with any idea and we are capable of handling any area if work needing to be done to customize your vehicle. Not to mention we have all the state of the art equipment, design and product experience & the best installers out there. We wanted to be a place where you can get something one of a kind that no one else can have. That has been a major factor into our sucess.

What should our readers know about your business?
We are a one of a kind Automotive Customization Shop. We strive to out out the best unique one of a kind builds out there on some of the hottest vehicles. We started from a one bay shop and through hard work, quality work, and a passion for the industry has put us on the map for people all over the country wanting us to build them there one of a kind vehicle. It was a long and hard process to get to where we are at today but was definitely worth it. We have learned a lot along the way on how to be the best of the best.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Houston is a very cool place. There is something for everyone. Would probably have to take them to Taste of Texas Steakhouse something special to hear you cant eat anywhere else. Have to go out downtown and check out the things the city has to offer and the fun nightlife.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
So nothing that happens under this roof is a one man job. It is a large team effort from the guys up front who bring the work in to the guys in the back who get the work done. Without each and every persons help we wouldn’t be where we are at today. I also want to thank my Dad and brother who also work along side with me to make this place a success as well as the support from my wife.
