"...People don't realize all the different things that they carry - band instrument cases, both hard-shell and soft. They make racks for installs - anything you can imagine for install equipment. And they just so happen to make guitar cases and bags, and they also have drum cases and bags. Lastly, they just introduced a great line of watertight cases, which I think is really cool."
The 'Company to Watch' award given to Gator Cases solidifies the brand not only for its innovation but for providing quality case solutions for a vast array of products. Other recipients of this year's award include such innovative and influential manufacturers as Fishman, Korg, Taye Drums, TC Electronic, and Zoom.
