Case Studies

Our Case Studies (no pun intended) provide a unique window into specific customer situations where our team was challenged to design case solutions to meet specific requirements. Some military customers request a solution not to exceed a specific weight as the solution is used by the wartime fighter. Others want a sleek, stylized sales demo case. This gives us the opportunity to design with various molding processes from rotationally molding to injection molding, from polyethylene, to silicone, to medical grade biocompatible resins. We look forward to learning about your requirement...or headache...and how we can work together to provide a value added protective case solution.
