When Pat and Esther DiMarzio
founded Krest Products Corporation in 1958, they began by
manufacturing just one comb style for the professional beauty
industry. In order
to succeed, they knew that the one style had to be made from
the finest quality materials and workmanship in order to be
accepted by knowledgeable, hard-working, professional
stylists. As a result, QUALITY became the cornerstone of the
company and QUALITY remains the cornerstone today.
Krest is now a third-generation family business.
Pat and Esther’s son, Rick DiMarzio (president), and
grandson, Dean DiMarzio (vice-president), continue the
“TRADITION of QUALITY” that was established by the
Krest now offers 5 distinct lines
of professional combs encompassing over 100 variations of
styles and/or colors for the discriminating professional.
These 5 lines consist of: 1) “Cleopatra”:
all-purpose combs of synthetic rubber, 2) “Krest”:
specialty combs of synthetic rubber, 3) “Goldilocks” and
“Silver Edition”: heat-resistant thermal combs of Dupont
Delrin, 4) “Krest Bone”: ultra heat-resistant combs of
phenolic resin, and 5) “Krest Hard Rubber”: handmade, high
heat-resistant combs of hard rubber.

dependability, to QUALITY customers.
In 1958, a manufacturing
“TRADITION of QUALITY” was established at Krest.
This tradition continues today.
We invite you to become part of this tradition.
