Torrance, CA - July 06, 2009
Following the acquisition of Hardigg Industries on December 23, 2008, Pelican™ Products, announced today that the premium Storm Case® brand will be added to the Pelican line, expanding the offering to more than 70 different injection molded case models.
From this point on, the Storm Case line will be branded as Pelican Storm Cases and will continue to be manufactured out of the company's plant in South Deerfield, MA.
"This latest move is the next phase in our plan to offer our customers the largest selection of equipment protection solutions anywhere on the globe. If you've got delicate equipment to transport, you can be assured that Pelican Products has a case that will fit and protect it," said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO, Pelican Products, Inc.
With 23 models to choose from, all Pelican Storm Cases feature the company's unique durable Press & Pull latches, which open smoothly-yet hold fast when the case is taking a beating. O-ring sealed and watertight, each model also has an integrated Vortex(r) valve which keeps water and dust out while automatically adjusting internal air pressure to make it easier to open the case at any altitude.
Engineered for extreme, commercial, military and industrial applications, Pelican Storm Cases come in black, OD green and yellow and are built from Pelican's patented HPX® high performance resin which makes them lightweight, and virtually indestructible.
Durable, wide, soft-grip handles with rigid cores make the cases comfortable to carry. A wide variety of interior configurations are available so Pelican Storm Cases can be easily customized to protect anything from photo equipment and laptops to weapons and scuba gear.
