Protechnic have 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 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. 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 enables 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 industries including, oil and gas, aerospace, MOD, medical, automotive and many more, 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.
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, 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 are exhibiting at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show at Farnborough between the 11th and 13th of February 2020 on stand number B260, please come along and see us there where we can help with any requirements you may have for re-useable packaging.
