transit. Keith Judson MD takes up the story: It takes a long time to build a company from a standing start and even longer to establish a reputation for


quality and service, but I am proud to say that Protechnic has become one of the industry leaders in bespoke case design and manufacture. Much has changed since the inception of Protechnic some 30 years ago, but we still hold true to our values of continual development and improvement, one of our axioms is that 'you should not let your last good idea be your last good idea' and our expert team of engineers are always looking for ways to develop our products, and incorporate the latest materials technology, our design ethos is to make our cases stronger, lighter and more cost effective, always with a keen eye on the customers’ needs.

In our quest for excellence we have such pioneering products as the Smart Case, Exo Case, Nio Case and

MultiPad. The Exo Case, in particular, is a patented product and is truly ground-breaking in the world of transit cases and enclosures. The Case system is modular and very configurable allowing us to make cases to suit a vast range of applications, our 19” rack frame products are ideal for the safe protection of rack mounted equipment in transit. The Exo Case has been adopted across a vast range of industries including Oil & Gas, Aerospace, MOD, Medical, Motor Sport, Audio Visual and Education – in fact any application that requires repeated use of transit cases. We are proud to include many ‘household’ names in in our customer base – Airbus, Rolls Royce, FIA, GE, Halliburton to name just a few. Many of our customers have been dealing with us for a very long time, this is a testament to our commitment to ‘getting it right’. We take great pride in the quality of our products and our service, and accordingly we are ISO 9015 accredited, and we are fully committed to the concepts of continual improvement as enshrined in the latest ISO standard.

We know from experience that a successful company is not just about great products - it is about the ability to

connect with and listen to the needs of our customers. Our bespoke design and finish services enable us to fully customise our solutions to match the technical requirements. It is testament to our customer service that we are still supplying some very long-standing customers from the early days of Protechnic.

Together with our bespoke products, we have a vast range of injection moulded, vacuum formed and roto moulded cases that enable us to offer the perfect solution across many applications. We are able to offer a range of waterproof cases (IP67) - Peli, Nanuk, B&W and HPRC, we can also offer a range of injection moulded cases including SPI, WEG. Tekno and Maxado. Our capability extends to foam engineering and we are able to specify and design the case interior to suit the requirement, based on the fragility of the equipment to be housed and the shock/vibration characteristics of the application. Our CNC, Water Jet and UV printing capabilities allow us to offer the complete solution.

Our product designs are driven by our customers, from a simple transit case to very involved designs for

transporting highly valuable and delicate equipment. We treat every requirement with the same ideology – what would be the best solution for our customer. There are many drivers in a case design, it may be cost, strength, weight, protection, aesthetics or timescale and we operate in a very wide range of industries that bring their own particular demands, but our skilled team of design engineers will establish the essential criteria in sufficient detail to allow our estimators to offer the most competitive solution.

We have some very exciting new developments in 2020, we are planning to launch our uprated 10mm Exo case in

Q2 and we have a new range of MultiPad products going live very soon. Please contact us for more information regarding any case and machined foam requirements you have.
