About Specialty Cases
In the Early Days
It began, like many great companies, in a garage. In 1989, Paul Young, an Anvil Case representative and shipping case designer, noticed something was missing in the industry. There were plenty of companies that sold cases, but very few distributors who provided relevant solutions for the diverse needs of many companies. By designing innovative products like multiple laptop shipping cases and computer and server cases, Specialty Cases became the place companies turned to when they needed secure solutions and quick delivery.
In the early days of the World Wide Web, Specialty Cases was ahead of the pack with a full service website which showcased business travel cases, trade show cases, and custom shock mount rack cases. In a world with seemingly endless packaging options, Paul made sure to offer plenty of pre-fabricated solutions that would remove the need for an extensive design process when possible. This led to specialtycases.com being the website for customers seeking convenient, economical shipping case solutions.
Our Continued Growth
As the phones kept ringing off the hook, the need for an upgrade became apparent, and Specialty Cases moved to its current Laurel, MD location in 2003. The following year, Mr. Young resigned as President, and Mr. John Gump took over the company. Under the guidance of Mr. Gump, the company continued to grow by offering new options, including adding the SKB line, venturing into eCommerce and streamlining and updating the designs that had proven to be the hallmark of Specialty Cases’ excellence. Mr. Gump also continued the top-notch customer service tradition and stressed convenience, ensuring that large quantities of cases were kept in stock in Maryland, cutting down on lead times and creating a showroom for customers to see what Specialty Cases had to offer.
In 2014, Mr. Gump retired and longtime General Manager, Kiersten Gillespie purchased Specialty Cases. In addition to being with Specialty Cases since 2005, Mrs. Gillespie brings over 20 years of experience in packaging and commercial solutions to the table. Known throughout the industry for her friendly, efficient customer service, Mrs. Gillespie continues the Specialty Cases’ tradition of service excellence. From military to industrial sectors, educational services, medical, and information technology specialists, if you’re looking for that case that will be the perfect fit, Specialty Cases will help you find it.
We keep stock of hundreds of cases, containers, and materials in order to best serve customers get fast delivery times. Depending on stock at the time of your order, we will ship out the same or next day. Our goal is to find the right transport case for you and have it delivered promptly and ready to go.
