Moving to bigger premises twice during the two decades, Peli UK now occupy a 20,000 sq ft purpose built facility with offices, warehousing and logistics operations in a stunning location at the edge of the Pennines in Glossop. Peli Protector Cases have become well established in the market as essential protection for broadcast and photographic equipment, offering watertight, dustproof and crushproof security. Over the two decades the Peli range of cases has developed and there are now more than 60 sizes of cases, offering the widest choice to the customer.
