Pelican Products was founded in 1975 in Torrance, California, by David and Arline Parker. Originally, the company had only a mail order business which offered useful items, such as knives and coolers.
Today, Pelican Products offers a wide range of what founder David Parker would still consider “useful” items, including coolers, cases and covers for smart phones, tablets, and laptops, as well as Zenon, LED, and Halogen flashlights. The company is owned by private investing firm Behrman Capital.
Pelican Products also offers customized, molded cases to fit special equipment, such as cameras and monitors. These customized case centers are found in the US, France, Australia, the UK, and Canada.
