AN INNOVATIVE local family business, Bandit Customs, is expanding to a new premises in the Lundberg Drive industrial estate and are keen to take their business to the next level.
Married couple Troy and Nadia Gascoine have been living in Murwillumbah for the past ten years and have developed their Bandit Customs business from amazing chroming and hydro-dipping techniques, which can be applied to almost any surface.
But the family home, where Troy has done much of his work, was far too crowded for more work and the time has come to step up.
“It’s such an exciting change for us,” Nadia said. “While we love having Troy at home, it’s become such a juggling act for space and this move to the industrial estate will certainly help ease up some room to live again.”
Launching the business after the devastating floods in 2017, the family have since been finding their feet. Bandit Customs uses cutting edge hydro technology, customising motorbikes, automobiles and even apparel.
“We aim to provide top quality cosmetic rebuilds and motorcycle paintwork,” Troy said.
“However, we are not limited to this area only, hydro-dipping can be applied to a wide range of mediums, including household items.
“Many people are interested to find out that we can transform everything and anything that can be submerged in water, including, toilet seats, fans, air-conditioning fascia, light-switch casements, even shoes.”
Hydro-dipping can also create a mirror-finish, exactly like chrome, at a fraction of the price and be applied to a wide variety of mediums.
“Troy is an absolute perfectionist and will not release a job until it’s up to his rigorous standards,” Nadia said.
The couple’s youngest son, Jack, will be starting kindergarten at Mount St Patrick College next year and Nadia will be undertaking studies in a Certificate III in Horticulture and Landscaping.
“I will continue with the management of all the accounts and advertising for Bandit Customs, but I’m looking forward to developing my passion for horticulture,” she said.
Ethan, Troy’s eldest son, will start year 11 at Wollumbin High School this year and hopes to be a primary school teacher.
The whole family said they were excited about Troy’s new premises and hope the community will embrace the services.
“We will soon be moving to our new premises, in the new industrial estate at the beginning of February 2018, right next to Mt Warning Natural Smoked Products, Unit 3, 190 Lundberg Drive Murwillumbah,” Troy said.
“We would love to hear from people with ideas that can take advantage of the unique hydro-dipping techniques,” he said.
“We work in conjunction with a number of local businesses, including, P&D Coachworks, Jade Airconditioning & Refrigeration and Diesel Customs just to name a few.”
