Pelican Products Adds 24 Rotationally Molded Case Models to Offer Infinite Equipment Protection Solution Choices


Torrance, CA - June 16, 2009 - Following the acquisition of Hardigg Industries (December 23, 2008), Pelican(TM) Products, the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and nearly indestructible cases, announced today that they now offer both injection and rotationally molded cases. The offering establishes the company as the global market leader in ruggedized equipment protection solutions.

"The biggest winner with this offering is the customer because it gives them an incredible range of protection solutions from a single source. These new models also represent a significant upgrade to Pelican's core product offering and a truly superior protection alternative to corrugated boxes, wood crates, aluminium cases and other inferior containers", said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO, Pelican Products, Inc.

Rotationally molded cases are created by loading structural grade plastic resin into a series of molds which are heated and slowly rotated on both a vertical and horizontal axis. The result is a seamless base and lid (with more material in the corners and edges) that offers superior impact protection.

New product offerings include:

Black Box(TM) Rack Mount Cases (7 models) are lightweight, compact, and double ended cases that offer light to medium duty protection (for communication and recording systems, etc.). The case shells feature recycled materials on the outside and a sturdy pre-threaded steel frame system that secures rack style electronics on the inside.

Specialty Products (7 Models) are well engineered portable workspace and equipment protection solutions. They include portable desks that set up in minutes and storage chests with metal drawers and dividers that keep supplies safe and organized. For protecting personal gear, lightweight and lockable foot and trunk lockers are also available.

Extra Large Shipping Cases (10 models) offer dependable large equipment transport and protection and are available in Large, X-Large, or XX-Large sizes. Like all Hardigg cases they are lightweight, shockproof, watertight, dustproof, heat, and chemical-resistant.
