Cold, hard cash case

August 23rd, 2012

The team at Mix 106.5, one of Sydney’s leading radio stations, needed a strong perspex case to hold $100,000 cash to promote their Mystery Voice campaign. Our happy client sent us loads of photos of the case on the streets of Sydney during the promotion. What better way to present such a great prize, in cash, and in a Samuelson Cases case, to boot! One of the many interesting promotional cases we’ve made over the years.

Crystal Trophy in safe hands with a Samuelon’s Case

August 23rd, 2012

We recently had the honour of making the case for the magnificent Waterford crystal creation that is the Tom Richards Cup. The stunning Rugby trophy, awarded to victors of the Rugby Lions test series between Australia and Britain needed to be extremely strong and sturdy to protect it during it’s travels. The trophy was named after Tom (Rusty) Richards, who played for the original Wallabies team back in 1908 and was the only player to have represented both Australia and Britain. It was a great job that the team loved working on, especially the Rugby fans amongst us!

Sweet Smell of Case making

May 31st, 2012

We have been busy this week custom making cases for Salvador Dali perfume samples for one of our customers. With several cases to produce, for both mens and womens’ sample bottles, the team has done an excellant job of making the custom built inserts so each bottle fits snuggly in place.

The team at Samuelson Cases just got a whole lot smarter!

All hands on deck this month!

March 28th, 2012

We were recently commissioned with making 120 rigidised cases for our client, a leading outside broadcasting company.

With 120 cases to custom build from scratch, we have had many hands on deck in our workshop this month to get them produced in time. This order has taken up a big proportion of our production capacity this month, but with our commitment to our customers, we have worked extra hard to ensure no other orders have fallen behind schedule as a result.

The 120 cases have all been colour coded in our client’s brand colour, making them instantly recognizable on location. To do this, the aluminium closures have been dyed, rather than just painting the aluminium, so the colour will never chip or scratch off.  It’s just one example that shows our commitment to building only the highest quality protective cases with superior finishes.

SMPTE

July 25th, 2011

Last week, Samuelson Cases went to SMPTE! SMPTE is a bi-annual conference & exhibition run by the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers. Considered to be one of  the biggest tech-fests Australia gets, we thought it would be a prime opportunity to showcase our work. Running over four days, the event was well attended, despite some serious rain, with attendees traveling from Singapore, New Zealand & even England to be there.

Samuelson Cases has always been a major supplier for the broadcast industry & SMPTE was a good chance to catch up with old clients, such as LEMAC, Videocraft & Panavision, as well as a serious networking opportunity. We met with people & companies from across Australia, and looked at some of the latest & greatest gear that we hope to be designing & building cases for in the near future.

Kill City Creeps

July 21st, 2011

One of the latest cases we’ve made is for the Sydney band, the Kill City Creeps. We made an extruded case for their 1969 Yamaha YC-10 combination organ, which is quite the musical collectors item these days. Incredibly popular in the 1960′s & 1970′s, these organs were used by bands such as The Doors, Elvis Costello and more recently bands such the Arctic Monkeys & the Kaiser Chiefs.

The case we made was an extruded case, with a foam insert that encased the YC-10. The case itself was made from aluminium, meaning that the case was light enough to be carried & handled easily, but still provided plenty of protection for the organ within.

Happy New Year!

January 21st, 2011
 
 
With the New Year comes a new premises for us! After a truly hectic move at the end of last year, we have finally settled into our new factory in Chatswood.
 
The big move was long & hard, due to the heavy machinery that had to be moved as well as the sheer volume of stuff that had accumulated over our 8 year tenancy at Artarmon.

However, we are now all moved into our new factory & are ready for the new year!

 

 
 

Avocado, anyone?

October 22nd, 2010

We made a case this week for Promotechnics – the premier maker of character costumes, sets & props! the case we made was for a cute baby avocado costume, which you can see in the photo! 

The avocado was made to promote avocado eating, and will likely crop up all over the place, so keep a look out!

Cure for the Common Cold?

October 12th, 2010

 

Clemenger BBDO, the advertising company, commissioned this case from us for one of their pitches! The pitch was for Codral: Cold Scene Investigations, and the case we made for it was a welded attaché case with an aluminum anodized closure, along with foam inserts, designed for the CSI on the move!
