USA – This year Pelican Products, whose European headquarters are based in Barcelona, which is also responsible for Africa and the Middle East, is celebrating its 40th anniversary. With the brand Peli, the company that was founded in California in 1976 by Dave Parker, has over the last four decades developed into one of the leading manufacturers of protective cases and advanced lamps. The Peli cases have proven to be extremely useful for protecting equipment in diverse ways, particularly in extreme situations, i.e. on excursions in the arctic cold or in the desert. The company’s lamps are used primarily in professional sectors and make up part of the equipment of firemen, policemen and soldiers for example.
“Pelican has a fantastic journey behind it – from the early days in a garage, through to the global presence as a manufacturer of the most robust products of its kind,” commented Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican. “Our ongoing success is the result of all those who have supported us with ideas and visions, their enthusiasm and with hard work over the years.”
