Pelican Professional • Jul 27, 2020
At Pelican, we strive to create durable, reliable products that last a lifetime, built by American workers. But you really can’t talk about Pelican’s American manufacturing without paying tribute to its late founder, David H. Parker. Pelican Products’ rise from a garage in Torrance, CA to a U.S.A.-based corporation that sells products to professionals around the globe is the result of his vision and hard work. Although the first product Mr. Parker invented was a small marker buoy used to pinpoint the location of submerged divers, it was a first aid kit designed specifically for divers that really put him on the map. When customers started repurposing the waterproof, crushproof and dustproof cases to store other items, Mr. Parker saw an opportunity to expand his product selection. It wasn’t long before he tapped into emerging plastics engineering to make a line of durable equipment protection cases that could be used for a wide range of purposes.
Listed below are just a few of the reasons that producing many of our products in America leads to direct and indirect benefits for our company and our customers:
But it’s not just about the WHAT we manufacture, it’s the HOW. That’s why Pelican Products has pushed for a holistic approach to our corporate culture and manufacturing practices. For our company, this means corporate dedication to Sustainability, Product Design, Operations, Safety, Ethics, Quality and Philanthropy. We have taken significant steps to enhance our sustainability practices and policies, and are working diligently to do more. Here are just a few of our favorite products that are Made in the USA:

We are compelled to take this opportunity to also thank our customers, because without their dedication to quality and demand for products that are made right here in America, we wouldn’t be celebrating over 40+ years producing products that are Built to Protect.
