Believed to be the largest acquisition in the history of the protective case industry, plastic injection-molded case manfacturer Pelican Products Inc. (Torrance, CA) has acquired Hardigg Industries (South Deerfield, MA), which specializes in rotational-molded (roto-molded) protective cases. The long-time competitors will combine their respective strengths to expand product and service offerings and continue to grow the new entity. Pelican will maintain operation of 22 offices in 12 countries and six manufacturing facilities in North America and Europe, as well as continue to leverage the brand recognition of Hardigg's products.As a result of the partnership, customers will be able to access the Pelican and Hardigg product lines through a single source. Designed for transporting products and equipment, cases from both companies are suited for use in a variety of industry and military applications. Hardigg was the first case supplier to manufacture an airtight, watertight, virtually indestructible container, according to the company. The company has designed and manufactured roto-molded protective transport cases since it was founded in 1954 and also offers custom-molded containers and cushion products that can reduce or eliminate mechanical shock, vibration, and exposure to chemical agents and decontamination solutions. Most of Pelican's cases are injection molded from a lightweight, durable, chemical-resistant polypropylene copolymer. The cases can withstand temperatures ranging from –10°F to 210°F. In addition to various case product lines, Pelican also supplies advanced lighting systems.
