Over the last few decades, we’ve manufactured military cases for every application imaginable. Our engineering department has designed case solutions based on everything from drawings and measurements to the equipment itself. To date, we’ve designed Ammunition Cases, Field Training Cases, Field Desk Cases, Missile Cases, Radar System Cases, Satellite Equipment Cases, Weapons System Cases, Computer and Printer cases, and beyond.

Due to the varying nature of the military’s requirements, we manufacture our cases in a variety of materials from rotationally molded plastic to and steel. Based on customer specifications, these cases can meet or exceed MILSTD-810, MILSTD-108, MIL-C-172, MIL-P-116, MILSTD-648, MIL-STD-2073, MIL-C-4150, MIL-T-4734,MIL-T-21200, MIL-PRF-28800 and more not listed here, and our military containers are available in Olive Drab (OD Green) and Desert Tan. We hold a GSA Contract (GS-02F-0215P) and can be found on the GSA Advantage website for reference. We’re also ITAR registered, and our code is ITAR Registration Code M36592.

It’s a lot of numbers and capital letters and olive drab if you’re not familiar with this area. If you are and our services can suit your needs, a member of our government sales and engineering team can guide you through the process of developing or customizing the best military case solution for you and your team

A little bit about our process

Combining years of experience with package design protecting high valued assets and the flexibility to get a project accomplished quickly, make us an ideal partner for military programs. We design in various materials including aluminum, plastic, and ballistic nylon. Whether you bring us drawings to manufacture to — or use our design and engineering services — we’ll manufacture a first article for approval prior to production. Depending on the MIL-SPEC's and requirements, we’ll provide drop tests and vibration tests for a small fee. Following testing, given no modifications are required, we’ll move to the production phase. We pride ourselves on the quality and attention to detail — not only with the transit cases and foam cushions we produce, but with contract requirements from FAIR documentation to source inspection.

We know the ins and outs of this industry and the specific challenges that come with creating a suitable and overachieving case — to serve those who serve.
