The first SKB case was created in 1977 by two ambitious college students in a humble residential garage in Anaheim, California. Together Steve Kottman and Dave Sanderson engineered what would eventually become the industry’s premier lightweight molded guitar case—just the first of many innovations that have since cemented SKB’s global reputation as a leading manufacturer of superior equipment transport solutions. Today SKB remains family owned and operated, and has expanded its operations into three factories with over 300 employees. SKB’s innovative solutions can be found on all seven continents where they help diverse industries around the world to protect their livelihoods, build better products, and get the job done—usually in the toughest environments where protection of sensitive equipment is mission critical. Top companies in music, photography, sports, aerospace, military, and more all look to SKB for support. After more than 40 years of steady growth, SKB is most grateful for the continued trust and loyalty of its customers, and remains dedicated to the assurance that every case with an SKB logo has been manufactured with an unconditional commitment to unsurpassed quality.
