Kustom, founded in 1968, is a Florida-based national property restoration firm. As part of their strategic long-term plan, Kustom is planning a series of acquisitions and division partnerships that will help them accelerate their brand recognition and customer reach in North America. The acquisition of Abracadabra will not only help Kustom expand its restoration service footprint to the entire state of Arizona, but will benefit the entire Abracadabra team.

Additionally, Abracadabra’s Breck Grumbles has announced his retirement after 37 years in the business. Travis Christensen, who has served as General Manager for the past 10 years will be taking an ownership position within the newly acquired division.
