Gator Cases was founded by a father-daughter team in Tampa, Florida in 2000. What started as a small offering of plastic molded guitar cases originally offered at NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) in Nashville, TN, their product lines have been greatly expanded to include over 1,000 different solutions constructed from high-quality plastics, wood, sewn, and EVA materials.
Since 2000, Gator Cases has seen fantastic growth in multiple areas. They have a complete OEM division that works with companies around the world to manufacture custom cases for Original Equipment Manufacturers. Gator Cases has continually invested in US-based manufacturing, acquiring their first company, Protechtor Cases, in 2008. Later expansions and acquisitions include a new 180,000 manufacturing and distribution facility in Indiana in 2013, Viking Cases, a US-based ATA rated flight case manufacturer in 2015, and Levy’s Leathers LTD, a guitar strap manufacturer, in 2018.
