About Us.  BIRD Automotive is a closely held corporation whose principal owner and president is Samuel Bird. Mr. Bird is a mechanical engineer/ MBA.  For more than thirty years we  have designed, produced, sold and serviced accessories primarily for European and Japanese automobiles.  At the beginning of the cellular era many of our products were related to installation and integration of cell phones.  The Cellular Armrest/Storage Armrest are two examples. 

Starting in 2000 we introduced a bike rack, ski/snowboard rack and golfbag/luggage rack system which offers substantial advantages over alternatives.

All of the company's sales are products we have invented, many with patent protection.  Most manufacturing is done by an accomplished team of long-term subcontractors.  From our computer aided designs  they use numerically controlled  laser cutters, computerized bending  and other fabricating equipment to assure consistent quality. All final assembly and final quality control is performed in-house as is product service. Our customer base is international with a concentration on the US east and west coasts which have a high density of European and Japanese automobiles.

Customer Support & Contact.   Support is provided by our in-house full time associates who are intimately familiar with our products and your vehicle.  Support inquiries and sales are by phone and email.  Most inquiries are handled in under an hour during normal business hours. Office Hours are 7am to 9pm, California time, Monday thru Friday and most Saturdays, excluding holidays.
