Kill City Creeps

Thursday, 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!

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?

Friday, 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!

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!

Plane Crash Survivor

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

This case was built a few years ago for the RTA to house equipment that needed to be shuffled throughout Rural Australia. It came back to us recently after having gone through a plane crash in Orange

The plane was written off, and the case itself is irreparable, however, the equipment housed within was left completely unharmed & in perfect working order, thanks to our superior construction & materials!
