El Kapitan has been producing executive and luxury van conversions for more than 30 years. We’re unique in this industry because we produce for demanding and highly selective customers in the U.S., Japan, China, Europe and Russia. We have produced more than 15,000 executive and luxury van conversions – which is a testament to our client’s appreciation for our quality and inspired craftsmanship.
El Kapitan is rare in the van conversion industry because we do everything in-house: design, fabrication, seating, painting, and especially woodworking and wood finishes. With exception of the vehicle itself and certain manufactured components, nothing comes from an assembly line. Every last executive and luxury van conversion is a handcrafted work of art.
El Kapitan is unique among many companies because we’ve grown our in-house capability through in-house talent. Most of our management team and employees have over 30 years of experience. Many of our builders have been with the company 20 years or more. We have very little staff turnover, and that means ground-floor-and-up attention to detail and superior workmanship. Here at El Kapitan, quality is everyone’s business: design to fabrication, fit to finish, and polish to perfection. Along with attention to detail comes excellent customer service by being responsive to our customer’s needs.
When you ride in an El Kapitan van, you instantly know that something is up. We have the craftsmanship and the ingenuity to make van conversions that are more than just a van that’s been converted. We make inspired environments for the safety and comfort of our customers.
El Kapitan’s factory is centrally located in Orange County off the 405 Fwy in Westminster, California with close access via John Wayne Airport , Los Angeles International Airport, and Long Beach Airport.
