Katzkin Leather Interiors Has Transformed More Than 1 Million Automobile Interiors

A Global Leader in Aftermarket Leather Interior Options, Katzkin Delivers OEM Quality and Function, Increased Choice, and Customization

MONTEBELLO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Katzkin Leather Interiors Inc. has been a global leader in aftermarket automotive leather interiors for 28 years and has transformed more than one million vehicle interiors. Elegant, sporty, sophisticated, edgy, whatever the style, Katzkin offers custom leather interiors for all tastes. Whether a consumer is looking to upgrade the factory cloth, or personalize with a one-of-a-kind leather interior treatment, Katzkin delivers.

Katzkin takes great pride in the quality and craftsmanship of its interiors, rivaling the look, feel and durability of even the finest interiors offered by automobile manufacturers. And each interior is backed by a 3-year/36,000 mile limited warranty on interiors installed by a certified installer.

"Vehicles offering a leather upgraded package typically include other features as well, but Katzkin replaces factory cloth seats with customized leather seating at a greater value than the factory leather package. And for segments that don't offer leather seating options, Katzkin makes it possible," said Brooks Mayberry, CEO, Katzkin Leather Inc.

To order an interior for a new vehicle, customers simply choose the interior of their choice at www.katzkin.com, print the order form and bring it to the car dealership of choice. The order form contains all the necessary details that will enable the dealer to properly install the selected leather. For used vehicles, the same online process is used, but Katzkin will recommend a local, certified installer. Customers can also select from a number of contrasting color schemes, piping, contrast stitching and more to help build a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Using the most sophisticated and advanced equipment, Katzkin receives, manufactures and ships each order in about 48 hours.

To streamline this process and allow for greater levels of customization, Katzkin has forged partnerships with many automotive manufacturers. Mopar Performance and Katzkin have joined together to bring quality leather interiors to Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge vehicle owners, allowing them to order a complete custom leather interior package directly from the dealer. Katzkin maintains more than 250 patterns to fit almost every Chrysler vehicle on the road. Whether it's a sporty late-model coupe, a heavy-duty pickup or a rugged SUV, Katzkin has the interior to match. Additionally, Katzkin has strategic relationships with Ford Motor Company, CarMax and Volkswagen.

"Our relationship with CarMax is opening Katzkin to the many millions of used car owners who want to make their car interior feel new again. We believe this market will embrace the concept in the same way a new home buyer wants fresh paint and new carpet when they buy an older house," said Mayberry.

Katzkin offers three levels of pre-designed interiors for new & used vehicles: Premium, Custom, and Limited Edition. Premium is a factory-style interior design typically available in three colors (black, grey, beige). Custom adds additional styling to match the personality of the vehicle. These interiors may include options and special materials such as contrast stitching and piping and are typically available in the same colors as the Premium line. Limited Edition is a unique design that represents the ultimate in design style.

Katzkin also offers exciting interior options such a DVD entertainment system, fully integrated sunroofs and heated seats. Katzkin and Rosen, the industry's leading mobile entertainment manufacturer, have joined forces to offer leather seating with a dual headrest DVD entertainment system. Katzkin also offers sunroofs with its partnership of Webasto. Venting glass panels for greater air circulation, sliding sunshades to block direct sunlight, a rain sensor, key-off auto-close and easy-to-use Soft Touch™ electronic controls to open and close the sunroof at the touch of the button are features that drivers and passengers enjoy with a Webasto sunroof. Completing the package is W.E.T. Carbotex seat heaters, which provide even heat distribution and the option of high and low settings.
