What GWP Protective customers say

I need to carry all sorts of fragile and sensitive equipment, from comms gear to medicines. Without GWP’s protective case, I would not only have risked damaging important kit, I could imperil an entire expedition. The cases were light, strong & reliable, a must-carry on any expedition.

07: GWP Protective.

An independent aluminium case supplier

GWP Protective have been supplying high quality aluminium cases – including the Zarges ranges as well as custom built flight cases – to businesses just like yours for more than 25 years.

However, unlike many other case suppliers, GWP are independent. This not only means that you can source a wider range of cases from a single supplier than anywhere else, but you can also be certain that you will receive unbiased advice on the best type of case for your needs.

Zarges aluminium cases
Zarges aluminium cases can withstand extremes of temperature, making them ideal for use in harsh environments

But GWP are more than just another case supplier.

In fact, the main part of GWP’s business is the creation of custom foam inserts, improving the performance of any protective case (and therefore the protection for your items) considerably.

And be sourcing the case and foam together, whilst also working alongside a team of specialist designers, the compatibility and quality will be higher than you can find anywhere else.

If you need the highest levels of protection for your products or tools, are suffering from high shipping costs, or simply need your business to look more professional, GWP can help.
