• From Afghanistan to Oregon

      bar We first met Dan Moyer when he posted to our Facebook page. Dan was eager to tell us about his experiences with ZARGES so we contacted him and he sent us the following. We're grateful to him for his fascinating story; we always enjoy hearing how our cases are used in the field. If you have a ZARGES story to share, please do!

    • Switching Sides from Plastic to Aluminum Cases

      K470-40859 A new customer who had done a lot of research into transit cases for their products compared our aluminum cases to our competitors' composite cases.

ZARGES aluminum cases are smaller, lighter, and allow for more cargo in the same footprint as our competitors. Below, we have reproduced the table they sent us, which not only convinced them of the superiority of our product, it shows a 41% space savings and 29% weight savings, a significant reduction.
