Customs by Cochran is home to some of the best-trained and passionate customization experts in the industry. This team is led by a legend in the customization field, Fritz Holzer. Learn more below.
For Zak Tremont, a lifelong obsession with cars and trucks has developed into a full-blown fascination for automotive design and customization. “I’m a designer and builder by nature,” he says. “This is not only my passion…this is who I am.”
Born and raised in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, he graduated from Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School in 2007 and Ohio University in 2012. Over the years, Zak has held sales positions with #1 Cochran’s Hyundai, Infiniti, and Audi stores. He also served as regional manager for Dealer Services International (DSI), where he oversaw lifted truck package sales in the tri-state area. In June 2023, Zak officially transitioned into his new role with Customs by Cochran.
When Zak looks at a vehicle, he sees unlimited possibilities. For years, he personally customized his Jeep Wrangler, and his latest project is fine-tuning his Toyota 4Runner. Not only is he a hands-on expert, but he’s also certified in CAD 3D design engineering software. His ideal job has always been outfitting dream rides, and he’s pumped to do just that for Customs by Cochran customers.
When he’s not on the clock, you’ll find him spending time with his wife Sara, daughter Kennedy, and son Harrison. Zak’s other interests include architectural design, cooking, and outdoor activities.

To say that Fritz was born with motor oil in his blood is an understatement! Growing up, he was fueled by his parents’ passion for custom cars and motorsports. In fact, Fritz spent most of his afternoons and weekends tinkering around their auto repair shop, at shows, or on the racetrack. At a young age (perhaps a precursor to his future), he would modify his toys because he just couldn’t leave them stock.
Later, Fritz would grow that talent into a career in automotive services and customs, eventually taking his builds to SEMA, partnering with Goodguys Rod and Custom, and building many other high-end vehicles. As well as developing relationships with vendors, Fritz has personally built a ‘67 and ‘68 Chevy C10, a ‘54 GMC, a ‘73 International Travelette (featured on prime time TV), and a ‘66 pro-street Nova. His custom builds have been showcased in Classic Trucks magazine as well as the JEGS High Performance catalog.
Today, Fritz is thrilled to help Customs by Cochran customers create daily drivers that stand apart from the crowd.
