4-wheel drive enthusiast and lover of adventure, Simon Crowe, channels his passion to creating innovative solutions for adventurers to help protect the underbody of their vehicles
Simon Crowe founded Custom Offroad Accessories in 2011 in collaboration with his very good friend, Mitchell Gregory. The duo turned their passion for four-wheel driving and supporting the less common 4wd’s in the market into a venture to help drivers and adventure seekers. The approach adopted by Simon and his team has particularly stood out the company from other auto accessories providers around. According to Simon, it was all about creating products that meet the needs of Australians made by an Australian company.
“We went with a premium product. Instead of getting stuff made in China, we made our product in Australia, and that’s what probably stood out compared to our competitors. We were putting our brain behind something that’s good. Our country wants something that’s good and getting stuff made and giving people confidence in the product,” said Simon Crowe.
“To create the success was then to market and make sure that people knew that is was Australian-made, that it was tested by me, to show videos of using my product. My product has saved my vehicle. I’ve used it in the middle of nowhere and it has rescued me,” said Simon.
It has been an amazing ride of almost a decade of providing amazing products to customers across Australia. Simon and his team have been able to provide high-quality stainless steel plates for different brands, including Mazda, Toyota, Nissan, Jeep, Ford, and a host of others. Over the years, the company has built a reputation for supplying quality, becoming one of the most trusted producers of underbody protection.
The phenomenal rise of Custom Offroad in a relatively short while can also be attributed to the combination of affordability with amazing customer service experience. Accolades have not stopped pouring in for the solutions offered by Simon and his team. “Bought the full bash-plate kit for our 2014 ranger before heading to the cape, This product-from COA is by the best and easiest product to install, the quality-and speedy service and postage is unmatched, to anyone looking-at this product, don’t go to anyone else, buy from here you won’t disappointed. A+ guys job well done,” said Alan Stirrett.
