Peli-Hardigg unveils key to over 60 years of expertise in solutions for aerospace at ILA


Peli-Hardigg is the largest manufacturer of military and aerospace approved re-usable, recyclable, plastic ATA 300 CAT 1, LRU, AGE, WSTAGE, logistic containers and cases.

For over half a century, Peli-Hardigg engineers have developed virtually indestructible solutions for the transport and packaging needs of the aerospace and defence sector, with the largest selection of durable, permanent and ecological cases that can be re-used again and again. Some examples of these advanced transport solutions will be showcased at ILA Show (Hall 3/stand 113).

Phil Morrison, Peli-Hardigg’s Technical Packaging Project Manager for EMEA, explains: “Peli acquired Hardigg Industries in 2008, and with this acquisition, it offers over 60 years of technical packaging know-how. We have European-based teams in the UK and France. Peli offers an expanding global team of over 30 engineers. Experts in developing solutions for protection and transport of UAV, aircraft engines, Satcom systems and weapon systems, regardless of its size.

“As the inventors of the industry standard cushioning curve formula, innovators in case design and experts in protecting hi-tech military equipment, few challenges are beyond our capabilities. Our products have protected the most sensitive, state-of-the-art technologies deployed around the globe under the most extreme conditions by aerospace, military and industrial customers. We are experts at mission-critical success,” added Morrison.

Peli-Hardigg offers every customer the optimised global resources of a renowned injection and roto-moulded case leader’s customised service and manufacturing capabilities. The resulting ability to respond with speed and agility benefits every advanced case solutions customer, whether requiring one unique case solution or a thousand delivered worldwide.

Four-stage custom engineering

“In a Peli-Hardigg project, there are four main stages: evaluation, design, testing and manufacturing. With advanced 3D engineering software, we visualise before manufacture how the container will look from every side and angle. We can also check for any critical interfaces, like checking the shock mount fit and that the plates are well fitted, and how the container will fit around that frame.”

Morrison added: “We have a very unique cut and weld procedure. In Europe, we use proof test facilities and we have our own military grade test lab in the United States. Our customers choose us because we can provide superior asset protection and better material handling for all types of equipment, from a small electronic device to a complete Typhoon tail container.”

Pelican-Hardigg cases are lightweight, watertight, heat- and impact-resistant and virtually indestructible.
