JD Customs USA was originally started by Jon in 2015, but it wasn't anything like the JD Customs USA you know today. Jon started out by powder coating custom Yeti cups and made over 630+ custom cups for customers in 2016, which helped fund the transition into car parts. If you scroll to the very beginning of our Instagram page (@JD_Customs_USA), you'll see a few posts showing some of the Yeti cups that he made. On September 7th, 2015 Jon purchased his 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution IX MR, which started to generate an interest in custom car parts that nobody else made, or parts that could be made better for a more affordable price. After making his first ignition system for his own Evo, he realized there was a market for more affordable ignition systems and began to sell them online and locally to other Evo owners. In 2018 Jon started offering titanium hardware for ignition systems and the demand for other titanium parts and hardware continued to grow. At this time Jon was still the only employee of JD Customs USA and continued to run it as a side job. The business continued to grow with the long hours Jon put in while still working a full time 9-5 job. He would get home from work at 5:00 and immediately start knocking out orders for customers. This continued until April 1st 2019 when Jon was finally able to support himself with a full-time focus on JD Customs USA. When COVID-19 hit in January of 2020, Jon was expecting things to slow down and started to worry about the future of the business, but with the stimulus checks coming in and people sitting at home with nothing to do but work on their cars, the business saw a huge spike in sales and Jon could no longer handle it all himself. In April of 2020 Jon hired his first official employee, Paul Allan. Fast forward to 2021 - We've grown to six full-time employees, which are an essential part of the growing business. We now offer our own line of titanium and carbon fiber parts, as well as custom titanium hardware and thousands of other products by top name brand companies in the industry. Our ignition systems are among the best selling and performing kits on the market today and continue to be one of our top selling products. JDC has partnered with the biggest distributors and top performance brands in the country and we’re constantly adding new brands and products to our ever-expanding website. We‘re currently in the process of building our own facility where we’ll have more room to continue to grow and bring new products to the market. None of this would have ever been possible if it weren’t for the support from amazing customers and the initial years of nonstop grinding by Jon to convert his passion into a sustainable career for himself and the entire JDC team. Now that you've heard how the business started off, it's time to meet the JDC crew! Paul Allan
