Fabricated ATA cases often referred to as Anvil Cases, Road Cases, or Flight Cases are built by skilled carpenters. They are designed to organize, protect, store, and transport your valuable equipment. Each of our fabricated ATA cases are custom made to ensure a perfect design to meet your needs. They can be produced in low quantities with endless design and functional opportunities. ATA cases are constructed to perform in the most demanding conditions meeting or exceeding Specification 300, Category 1, ATA. Source welcomes complicated projects and responds with innovative, value added solutions.

We offer many options and features which can be incorporated into your case design. Foam fabrication is one of our specialties. Using a combination of hard or soft foams for stability, support, and protection we cut and fit the foam to your specifications. Source will work with you to develop your project from concept to production (we use auto cad designs, PDFs, just simple measurements and doodles).

Panels of plywood are lined with plastic or fiberglass, then cut, assembled and connected with metal components to create a case. Although the process is labor intensive, it is one of the best options to build a single case that is fabricated to your specific requirements with no tooling costs. Any size can be constructed to a 1/8” tolerance. This low volume alternative can also be adapted for producing 500 cases when required, and offers flexibility in color, construction, and optional features such as casters, recessed hardware and wheels, pull handles, fork lift skids, racks, and more.
