Pelican Products and AMS Team up to Drill Down

TORRANCE, CA - October 18, 2006 - Pelican(TM) Products' high-impact, watertight Protector(TM) Cases have been chosen to house the AMS Hollow Stem Auger Sampling Kit.

"Pelican Protector Cases remain the gold standard in the industry and we are gratified that AMS has seen fit to house its precision sampling kit with our cases," said Mark Rolfes, Pelican's Vice President of Sales.

"While being used in the field, precision sampling equipment can take quite a beating from the elements so it was only logical that we chose the legendary durability and dependability of a Pelican case to protect it," said Troy Chipps, President of AMS.

Formulated for easy and accurate soil, soil gas and ground water sampling, the Hollow Stem Auger Sampling Kit provides all tools needed for testing personnel to reach a depth sample of up to 6-feet. The kit includes a three-foot Auger extension with inner rod, a 7/8" x 24" hollow stem soil probe, a slide hammer and two adjustable crescent wrenches. It also features a Bosch® 11245 Electric Rotary Hammer Drill as well as a lead auger with tip, inner rod, plug cap and drill adapter.

Pelican Protector Cases boast a fully-stackable, trademarked, "Dual Band" design with an open cell-core wall, polymer construction that protects sensitive equipment from some of the harshest conditions on Earth. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases in the line feature double-throw latches that have been engineered to withstand nearly 400 pounds of force yet open with a light pull. To protect against cutting and theft, stainless steel padlock protectors are standard as well.

Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust-proof/waterproof seal and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuum lock so it's easy to open at any altitude. As with all Pelican products, their cases are backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: "You break it, we replace it...forever."(TM)
