When the band broke up, Erik and a few friends started a technology company called Mavidea, where he still serves as its CEO. Mavidea builds websites, does internet marketing and manages IT infrastructure for small businesses.
With Mavidea growing and thriving, Erik & Kris decided to re-launch the Maxlider brand and channel their love for vintage Broncos and old Ford trucks into a business.
With some investments from family and friends, they opened an 8,000 sq. foot shop focused solely on the sales and restoration of Ford Broncos and trucks. Little did they know, their timing was perfect because the Bronco was quickly becoming the most popular classic vehicle in the United States!
Today, they are the largest Bronco shop in the country and sell 80-100 Broncos each year. Their high-end Bronco builds have earned numerous awards at top auto shows across the country like SEMA in Las Vegas.
Maxlider Brothers Customs currently has 13 full time and 3 part time employees and continues to grow quickly. Erik attributes the fast growth to their consistent use of Social Media and a relentless focus on maintaining a great reputation. If you have seen their Instagram & Facebook videos, you'll notice Erik running around singing and acting like a 14-year-old boy again...it's obvious he is having the time of his life....and so are their employees! "I'm not in it to get rich, just to build great relationships with people. We will work really hard to serve our customers and help them get the best Bronco they can afford. We want to do it right...by doing the right thing," says Erik, "each new customer is an opportunity to earn a long term relationship".
