Futura teams up with West Coast Customs
West Coast Customs and Futura Trailers are excited to announce their partnership that will see West Coast Customs using Futura’s world-first innovative, electronically-controlled lowering, all-aluminum vehicle trailer for its vehicle transportation needs.
Ryan Friedlinghaus, founder and CEO of West Coast Customs said that they were looking for a better solution for the delivery of their one-of-a kind custom car builds to their clients. “We’ve been using standard steel vehicle trailers for years but they’re heavy, difficult to maneuver and just don’t have the right look for the quality of our custom work”.
Mr Friedlinghaus said “our team spotted the awesome looking lowering Futura trailer on Instagram, so we reached out to them to find out more”.
With manufacturing facilities in California and South Carolina, Futura has been selling its lowering trailers to track-day race car owners throughout the United States since 2016 and jumped at the opportunity to partner with West Coast Customs to branch into the custom and specialty car market.
Futura CEO, Damian Camp explained “the custom, speciality and classic car market is significantly larger than the track-day race car market.
Our electronically controlled lowering trailers are constructed with anodised aluminum which makes them durable and light-weight. Because they are easy to use and look good, they are the perfect match for any car enthusiast”.
“We’re excited about working with Ryan and the West Coast Customs’ team to deliver a superior vehicle trailer experience for their clients” said Mr Camp.
The partnership between the two companies will see West Coast Customs using Futura’s open and enclosed models of its lowering car trailers and promoting them to its customers as well as for the West Coast Customs’ special projects. Mr Friedlinghaus said “we’ll use our new Futura trailer to deliver a very special mini-truck to the SEMA Show starting October 31 (https://www.semashow.com/attendee). We’re very proud of the exceptional work by our West Coast Customs Academy students. It’s fitting that we transport the mini-truck to Las Vegas on our own Futura trailer.”
