History of SKB Cases

SKB Cases have been around since 1977, and like most good things, started in a garage in California. Dave Sanderson and Steve Kottman created the first SKB case: a guitar case. Though they’ve definitely branched out from making musical cases, they started out with a solid foundation of making transport cases for sensitive equipment. SKB began to expand in 1979 when they created 2,500 cases for none other than Fender’s Stratocaster. By 1983, SKB had 20 employees and was cranking out over 600 cases per week. They began picking up military contracts and working with sports companies by the late 1980s/early 1990s and continued to expand the employee base. In 1998, they won entrepreneurs of the year. Kottman and Sanderson do everything on their own roto molding and injection molding machines. They are continuing to innovate and improve their standards as well as grow the company. Today they create custom shipping cases using vacuum, rotational, and injection molding for military, industrial, and medical facilities. We are proud to call them an Advanced Packaging partner!
