Peli™ Products S.L, the global leader in the design and manufacture of virtually indestructible cases and advanced lighting systems, expands its European manufacturing operations in Germany.
Since October 2007, the company has been producing six of their most popular Protector Case models in Crottendorf, Germany in tandem with their 60.960 square meter plant in Torrance, California.
Today the company announces that its manufacturing partner in Germany, HVB Kunststofftechnik GmbH, is opening a new production plant. Based in Crottendorf, the new 3.000 square meter facility, fully equipped for producing the largest sizes of Peli protector cases, will manufacture a total of 10 models (1400, 1450, 1500, 1520, 1550, 1600, 1610, 1620, 1650 and 1660). Peli’s forecast calls for additional models to be produced in the future.
“Last year, the production in Germany represented 42% of our cases sales in Europe. Now we are enlarging our production with four of our larger cases, including their trolleys, and another six injection moulding tools to bring the total to twelve. With these additions, 70% of our European case business will be produced in Germany”, says Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products, Inc.
In recognition of their extraordinary work, Peli Products has awarded HVB Kunststofftechnik the “Peli Vendor of the Year 2008” honor.
“After two years of cooperation with Peli, we can say that it is a great company to work with as well as a reliable partner. We want to thank Peli for trusting in us and we look forward to expanding our mutual businesses”, states Peter Heß, Managing Director of HVB Kunststofftechnik.
