07: SKB Case Alternatives.
Wide range of additional options, including Peli & Explorer
Being one of the newer waterproof cases on the market – alongside the Nanuk range – means there are actually a number of alternative brands available.
Unlike many case suppliers, by being independent GWP protective can actually allow you to source the widest range of protective cases from a single source. This isn’t limited to waterproof cases however, and covers aluminium, lightweight plastic, flight cases and other custom built options.
What’s more, GWP can provide you with genuinely impartial advice on the best protective case solution for your specific project, application or market.
08: GWP Protective.
More than just a waterproof case supplier
Any company could sell you a waterproof case. So why get yours from GWP Protective?
Well, there are a number of compelling reasons.
First of these is that GWP has been in business for over 25 years. In this time we have helped literally thousands of companies just like yours in sourcing the most suitable protective case for their application, product or industry.
Further to this, being an independent company means that we can offer you a wider range of cases than you can find elsewhere, and can give honest, impartial (and free) advice on the best option for your specific requirement.s
Perhaps even more important than this though, is the you having the ability to source case and foam inserts from a single supplier.
But why is this important?
Crucially, it means the fit and compatibility between case and foam is greatly improved compared with sourcing them separately. Buying together also reduces costs, minimises admin and lowers lead times.
Add this to an experienced design team, services such as just in time supply and a dedicated customer support team, and the choice of where to get your cases from seems obvious…
