NANUK protective hard cases

Providing carrying and transport solutions to professionals, technicians and sportsmen around the world for over 20 years.

Our History

Providing protective carry and transport solutions for specialty equipment in a variety of industries. NANUK protective cases are used for sensitive equipment such as medical devices, drones, cameras, firearms, A/V gear, measuring equipment, OEM product solutions, computers & communication equipment, and many other high-values professional equipment for over 20 years.

Plasticase, NANUK’s corporate entity, initially started manufacturing plastic cases in 1984 under the name ​of ​Resentel Ltd. A few years later, after the company’s ownership was restructured, Plasticase emerged with a clear​er ​mission: design, engineer​,​ and manufacture the highest quality injection molded plastic cases in the world. ​By initially establishing a parallel with the success and trend ​that had been​ created by ​Swatch​ (​a brand of​ plastic watches made in Switzerland), ​our​ first product initiative made its debut as a fashion accessory and was sold as a cool “must-have” case for students and young adults through upscale department stores, trendy design shops​,​ and fashion accessory boutiques.

Growing The Line

Not long after the release of our ​first product, the Plasticase Designer™ 639 attaché​ ​case, the line ​grew​ to over 20 sizes and styles adapted to a wide variety of users with a clear focus on the needs of the B2B market. As the company evolved, demand for an innovative line of robust​,​ waterproof cases became evident. Plasticase moved forward with a bold response: NANUK “The Evolution of Protection”​—​a complete line of waterproof and indestructible protective cases rated for military, law enforcement​​, industrial, and professional users.
