Plasticase initially started manufacturing plastic cases in 1984 under the name Resentel Ltd. A few years later, after the company's ownership was restructured, Plasticase emerged with a clear mission: design, engineer and manufacture the highest quality injection molded plastic cases in the world. At first paralleling the success and trend created by “Swatch” (plastic watches made in Switzerland), the first product initiative made its debut as a fashion accessory and was sold as a cool “must have” case for students and young adults through upscale department stores, trendy design shops and fashion accessory boutiques.
As the company evolved, demand for an innovative line of robust waterproof cases became evident. Plasticase moved forward with a bold response: NANUK “The Evolution of Protection”, a complete line of waterproof and impact resistant protective cases rated for military, law enforcement and professional users. With innovative features like the patented Powerclaw latch, rugged NK-7 resin and a distinctive style, NANUK instantly earned global recognition while capturing significant international market share.
