Our History

Our Flight Case History

The directors of 3D Flight Cases Ltd are probably the most experienced flight case designers in the world with each having around 30 years in flight case design plus ‘hands on’ experience of how flight cases are used and abused in the hectic life of world touring.

Steve Kane was one of the founder members of Packhorse Flight Cases in the mid-70′s and is the designer of the original ‘double sided’ extrusion used in flight case construction. Some 10 years later Sam Robinson joined Packhorse Cases, spending the following 20 plus years improving on flight case designs and flight case construction methods and still remains a share holder in Packhorse Cases today. After some twenty years Steve left Packhorse Cases to work on live concerts and other large events round the globe before joining Amptown Cases in Germany.

In 2010 Steve and Sam decided to form 3D Cases Ltd to offer more than just flight cases. Today Sam and Steve still enjoying working together after all these years, and as before are involved with their suppliers on further improving flight case designs and flight case construction methods. Their aim, as always, is to design the best flight cases on the planet which, as in the past, other companies try to imitate. And guess what – it’s working!
