Story Behind the KYLAS Name

In 2004, after his second child was born, Farid decided to establish his DBA as KYLAS, which was the result of putting the two names of his children together - Kylie & Nicholas.  Since then, he has a third child named Melina.  A unique company logo was designed to represent the love for his three children -- a triangle followed by three distinct lines.
