Offering a unique and diverse range of custom case solutions, Cases By Source is committed to providing high quality cases for the best possible value. Through a global network of partners and in tandem with our knowledgeable internal team, we’ve created a process and products rich in innovation.
We strive to build long-term relationships in order to understand, anticipate and deliver on your projects so you come away with the solutions that make your business, and life, more efficient.
We’ve continued to grow and maintain a competitive advantage in the industry by being customer focused, market aware and constantly innovating on our approach to solving problems — constantly looking for new and better ways to create tangible solutions.
Cases By Source was established in 1985 to serve virtually any size customer — from small companies to Fortune 500 corporations. We have continuously built our industry knowledge and honed our craft to offer the best case solutions to meet the ever-expanding needs of our customers. Combining our experience and skills with the latest technologies — we provide single-source service for custom cases and packaging that are used to secure, protect, transport and display some of the world’s finest (and most expensive) products — from delicate instruments to sensitive equipment for the US Military.
We are headquartered in northern New Jersey, with design and manufacturing team locations both domestically and overseas. Providing cases in a wide range of materials like plastic, metal, and wood (both with or without foam interiors), we employ a wide variety of manufacturing processes — so wide, there’s not enough room to list it here — to deliver high quality products that meet a broad range of goals.
This was our birth year; born simply as a packaging company. From chinaware to delicate items for the People’s Choice Awards — it was about presenting and protecting our customers' products using disposable packaging. We were getting in the game, but really first as brokers.
A few years later, we made a shift from disposable packaging to incorporate reusable cases — with a vision of becoming The Home Depot of cases (with a touch less orange). We started stocking all different kinds of cases, and in doing so, saw the immense demand for an e-commerce destination for all things cases.
From about 2000 through 2010, the natural evolution of custom cases evolved into marrying the physical case itself with the custom solution — answering the specific needs of our customers. So we began to move away from stock cases to solely focus on custom case solutions that paid close attention to brand identity. We knew how to protect products, so we began to focus on the aesthetic presentation as well.
We began expanding the design experience — like our DIY online tool — to migrate the customer experience online for the ease of customers and partners alike. In tandem with that, we began expanding the technologies we’re able to support — like the first responder support cases that allow an onsite satellite to be used in the case of a natural disaster. That’s just one example — but the idea is that we wanted our cases to evolve with the ever-changing needs of the world around us.
Today and moving forward, we’re putting everything under one roof with a new global headquarters for design, production, testing and warehousing. We don’t consider this an endpoint, instead, constantly iterating on how we can elevate our game and do better by our products and our customers.
Clients rely on our expert knowledge to recommend solutions that best meet their needs — taking into account things like aesthetics, material strength, durability, portability, optimized utility and cost. We customize stock cases with precision-cut foam inserts and molded interiors to meet your specific requirements, while understanding the strengths and limitations of each brand in order to guide you to the best case for your business.
We’re bringing real-time case design to your fingertips with our suite of DIY tools. The CasePro Designer allows you to select an off-the-shelf stock case and design your own custom foam insert — through the use of shape tools, parts library and a photo tracer. And if you need a custom ATA Road Case, look no further than the Road Case Designer — designed, ordered, and at your door in 3 weeks.
We develop your ideas by transforming them into tangible, custom-made cases that meet your precise specifications while accentuating your brand. Starting with a “chicken scratch” concept on the back of a napkin, our sales engineers collaborate with and guide you from concept to completion; providing CAD prints, 3D renderings, and ultimately manufacturing the best solution for their product. In some instances, we also perform contract manufacturing and preload your equipment or product samples into the delivered cases.
