Penn Elcom, a world-leading manufacturer of hardware for flight cases, speaker cabinets and 19-inch racking solutions, has seen benefits such as significantly faster cycle times and vastly shorter lead times thanks to the phased replacement of press brakes with advanced lean-series panel benders from Salvagnini. Investment of this level reflects the company’s global status as a $60 million turnover business with a catalogue that contains more than 3000 products in the field of stage technology.

“We’re the biggest manufacturer of flight case hardware in the world,” states Roger Willems, Founder and Chairman of Penn Elcom. “There can’t be many bands or orchestras that do not use our products. Everyone thinks we’re American, but I started the company here in the UK.”
