Justin Stephens : Owner JS Custom Interiors
Justin learned the trade from his father when he was thirteen years old. Justin’s dad had 30 plus years’ experience in automotive interior work. And as many young teenagers will do, Justin watched and he learned and he excelled! He worked on anything he could, from seats to stools and even gym bags, remembering brining a bag he had sewn to class which outdid his 8th grade Home Economics teachers.
JS Custom Interiors was born in Justin’s garage where his tools consisted of a bench, sewing machine, an air compressor and a heater to keep warm on long nights finishing projects for clients. After three years, Justin took a job at an interior shop during the day while working in the evenings for his personal clientele at night. And when he outgrew all of those environments, Justin took the plunge and opened his own shop which now consists of three employees and himself. Justin conducts his business with a hands on approach, even to this day. His commitment to quality and excellence are unparalleled and Justin speaks to all prospective clients, reviews and sets up budgets and is their constant point of communication during the entire process. And if you stop by the shop for a visit, you will most likely see Justin at his sewing machine working diligently to meet a build deadline.
Justin says “I get to work with some of the best builders in the country on high end vehicles that really are works of art.” And what does Stephens find to be the least compelling part of the industry? “The long hours and deadlines can be tough, be we all know they come with the territory.”
At the end of the day, it isn’t just about long hours at a sewing machine meeting client deadlines. Justin is a passionate family man and recognizes that JS Customs would not exist if it were not for his beautiful wife and business partner, Shanie. Shanie and Justin have been married for 17 years and have two incredible sons, Kaden and Karson. “I have worked on many luxurious and expensive cars, boats, helicopters and even aircraft, but the only reason I go to work every day is for my family. And it is the same reason I am so happy to leave the shop each night.”
