Our Company

Tubby's Customs Inc. is a Christian, family-run business. The owner, Len Martin, is the backbone that holds it all together. He started the business in 2003 because of his love for old cars. His father, James, joined the business shortly after. Len has learned a lot from his dad, growing up and building cars together. In order for Len to get his license when he turned 16, he had to build a car himself - well, with a little help from his dad. His daughter Jessica is in the office, keeping things organized so that Len can do the thing he loves most - work on cars.  


Our Business Philosophy

The objective of our business is to provide a high quality product and reliable service for our customers. We have an open door policy and love when our customers get involved.

We strive for the best, stay honest, and stand behind everything we do. We hope you will enjoy visiting our website and using our products as much as we enjoy providing them for you!
