Protechnic has been manufacturing specialist cases in the UK for over 30 years and during that time have developed a number of unique products that are ideally suited for the safe protection of equipment in 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 what the customer needs.
In our quest for excellence, we have such pioneering products as the Smart Case, Exo Case, Nio Case, MultiPad. The Exo Case, in particular, is a patented product and is truly ground-breaking in the world of transit cases. We take great pride in the quality and 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 service 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, we are top tier distributors for Peli Cases, Nanuk Cases, B&W cases, Explorer cases, MAX Cases, HPRC cases, Zarges cases, Weg Cases, Techno Cases, SPI Cases and many more, our range of products enable us to offer the perfect solution across many industries including, oil and gas, offshore, aerospace, MOD, medical, education, automotive and motorsport, in fact just about any application that requires the safe transit of equipment. 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. With a full range of computer-aided machining centres, we are able to provide the most complex and intricate foam engineered products. We also have full-colour process printing in-house with our Roland DG flatbed printer, this enables us to add highly detailed full-colour images to our cases.
Our main website – www.protechnic.com, has a great deal of detail about our capability and product range we also have an e commerce site at www.cases2go.co.uk where we offer COTS products on a next day delivery service and we have www.multipad.co.uk – this web site is dedicated to our range of multiped products aimed mainly at educational applications but these products are also used in office and medical settings where the transport, charging & Synchronization of multiple USB devices is required.
Our product designs are driven by our customers, from a cardboard box solution 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, timescale and we operate in a very wide range of industries that bring their own particular demands, but our skilled team of design engineers, utilising the latest 3D design software, will establish the essential criteria in sufficient detail to allow our estimators to offer the most competitive solution.
