The Pelican brand is renowned for its highly durable, all-purpose protective cases, and high-impact, watertight portable flashlights and lighting systems for outdoor, photography, military, law enforcement, diving, and construction use.
Based in Torrance, California, Pelican is an American multinational company founded by David Parker in 1976. An avid scuba diver, he earned extra money by salvaging anchors and selling them to local shops. To keep track of the anchors on the ocean floor, he made his own diving marker float device, which works better than those sold commercially. He named it the Pelican Float and began selling them to local dive shops. He also advertised in diving magazines and soon a mail-order business is born from his garage. His wife, who has a full-time job, helps him out in her free time processing and mailing the orders. With business booming, he enlisted the help of his friend, Jerry Linehan, to handle the financial side of business. He began creating diving-related products, including an underwater flashlight for scuba diving. The product’s advanced quality caught the attention of the US Special Forces and the Navy, who placed an order for 2,000 units and outright paid $43,000 in cash.
Pelican has continued to evolve through time with its new line of products. They started making watertight cases and a wide range of protective cases for weapons, cameras, cell phones, laptops, outdoor/offshore coolers that can endure electric shocks, hard impact, rugged use, extreme and fluctuating temperature. Pelican also manufactures heavy-duty, watertight flashlights and remote area lighting systems.
