Pelican Products Continues Aggressive Global Growth Acquires Renowned Custom Packaging Solutions Provider - Trimcast

TORRANCE, CA - Apr 04, 2011

Pelican Products Pty. Ltd., recently concluded a transaction to purchase the renowned, Australian-based custom packaging solutions provider Trimcast. The move brings two legendary brands under the same corporate umbrella and signifies the Company’s explosive international growth. It also dramatically enhances the Company’s custom packaging solution offerings in the Australasia region.

“As we continue to grow our global business both organically and through strategic acquisitions such as this, it’s important that we bring companies into our family of businesses that meet both our business goals and have a similar culture and outlook – Trimcast meets both those criteria,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products. “We are extremely pleased to be working with them to offer our customers throughout Australasia, the enhanced capabilities that no other case company in the world can offer.”

Trimcast is an Australian-based leader in the design and manufacture of custom packaging solutions and has been serving the market for more than 30 years. It has distinguished itself with a reputation for premium products and protective packaging services and is the major case supplier to the Australian Defence Force, as well as other NATO forces and Commercial/Industrial companies around the world. They will continue to manufacture their full line of products which includes the extremely popular Spacecase® line and work in tandem in Australasia with Pelican to advance the custom packaging solutions category.

“Pelican Products as a multi-national company will automatically multiply Trimcast’s market for custom packaging solutions and we couldn’t be more pleased,” said Alan Gibson, Founder of Trimcast. “This is a perfect fit for both companies and we are proud to be part of the Pelican team and look forward to working with them to pioneer advances in equipment protection technologies.”

Pelican products are preferred by professionals such as military, fire services, law enforcement and outdoor enthusiasts, who work and play in extreme conditions across the globe.
