Pelican was established by Dave Parker along with his wife Arline in their Torrance, California carport in 1976. An avid Scuba diver since he was 11, Dave perceived the need for tough flashlights and cases that wouldn't spill or fall flat and set out to manufacture a superior item than whatever other available. After years of diligent work and sacrifice, Pelican Products turned into a reality with its first item patent, the Pelican Float™. The legendary SabreLite™ flashlight followed and Protector Cases soon after that.
Pelican's product offering and organization steadily grew through the years and, in 2004, the company was secured by Behrman Capital, a private equity firm. Shortly after that the company encountered incredible growth under a new CEO, Lyndon Faulkner, who was selected in 2006. With a diverse and rich background, Faulkner moved to Pelican Products from Microsoft Corporation, where he acted as the North American Operations Manager assisting industry-changing items, for example, the XBOX®, Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2000. Moreover, he built the compact-disc producing pioneer Technicolor®/Nimbus into an IPO as they acquainted the world with computerized digital media with the compact disc (CD) and the digital video discs (DVD).
Following a couple of years of building up the association, 2008 was a banner year as Pelican Products executed a forceful growth strategy highlighted by worldwide expansion and acquisitions. This brought about new sales locations and manufacturing offices across the globe, and additionally the creation of Pelican Australia and the beginning of the Advanced Area Lighting Group.
With the buy out of its closest case rival, Hardigg Industries, toward the end of 2008, Pelican had made its biggest procurement ever. This almost doubled the size of their company overnight, making it the biggest maker of equipment protection cases on the planet.
