Torrance, Calif.-based storage case maker Pelican Products Inc. received major coverage on page 1 in the April 29 Los Angeles Times business section. The 1,126-word article, one in the Times' "Made in California" series, includes descriptions of Pelican's quick-mold-change and automated production processes. "The new tool goes in and we're making a new case, all in less than 10 minutes" rather than the previous change time of about 18 hours, Lyndon Faulkner, Pelican chief executive officer, says in Ronald D. White's report, headlined "Pelican Products proves as durable as the storage cases it makes." Last year Pelican was one of the winners of a Plastics News Excellence Award. The company, which does injection and rotational molding, picked up the award for industry/public service.
