Chris Ryan has always been a car guy. Always. At age 10 he was helping his father do body, custom and restoration work in his Pennsylvania shop. As he grew, so did his passion. Seeking to hone his skills through education as well, he enrolled in Penn State, and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1989. Not only did he have years of learning the nuances and artistry of building cars, but he now had the technical know-how to back it up, and to push the envelope further.
In 2003 Chris moved to South Carolina and opened Ryan’s Rod & Kustom. When it opened, it was a small facility specializing in doing great work on a few pieces at a time. And it still is. The shop is state-of-the-art. Chris has the latest welding, cutting, and shaping equipment that you’ll find in the bigger shops. Ryan’s Rod and Kustom has the ability to manufacture a wide range of chassis, body and suspension pieces to set your project apart.
Chris and his team pride themselves on personal service and attention to detail for all of their clients. The shop only takes on a small amount of projects at once in order to ensure the highest level of quality and customer satisfaction.
