Established in 1977 by company founders Dave Sanderson and Steve Kottman, SKB Corporation manufactured its first guitar case in a small Anaheim, California garage. Today, SKB is recognized globally as an industry leader in the design and manufacture of molded polymer transport cases.
SKB Corporation started as a musical case manufacturer with only one major client, Fender Guitars. To eliminate a manufacturing slow-sown when the music industry slowed, SKB began searching for additional industries to service. They came across the telecommunications industry that was booming at the time, and developed polyethylene cases for a cabling company.
n 2006 SKB took innovation by the hand again with the development of a new proprietary blend of hi impact co-polymer polypropylene that is 3 times stronger than competitor’s plastic for injection molded cases. With this new blend and increase in production another high efficient and energy saving state of the art injection molding machines that was among the largest in the United States was added in 2008 with an even larger injection molding machine to be installed by the end of 2013 for further development of cost effective new products.
