MPD’s MPH Industries, Inc. subsidiary (“MPH”) has operated in markets similar to Kustom in the past. Braswell said, “We have respected, admired and been challenged by Kustom over the years. MPH and Kustom each have an extremely loyal customer base, with relatively little overlap. Leveraging Kustom’s extensive network of channel partners, broad product portfolio, and expertise in both video systems and evidence management, MPD will be an even stronger force in the global traffic safety equipment market.” Kustom will operate as a separate MPD subsidiary from its current locations. Frederick S. Perry will serve as President of Kustom. Fred has been with MPD for over 27 years having served at various times as Vice President of Business Planning & Development, and as President of MPD subsidiaries: MPH Industries, MPD Components and FIC Corporation.
