I know there was a similar thread a while back on the Forum, but it was geared towards case companies in New York.  I am looking for a case company in Los Angeles that will put foam in my Pelican cases and cut it out to fit the equipment that will go inside.  Robert Starling pointed out Master Case (who I haven't used yet) in the previous thread, but I was wondering if people in LA had good recommendations in addition.  


I dropped three Pelican Cases off at Innerspace Cases yesterday to be refoamed - two 1450's for my batteries and one 1610 for my chargers.  The ETA I was quoted was 3 weeks, which seems long, and last time I was there the ETA was surpassed by weeks, which I forgot until I was in their office.  I'm currently in between jobs so that timeline is probably okay, but I'll need to have two more cases refoamed once the new Teradek Sidekicks are available, and I don't know if I want to wait that long for a relatively simple foam job.  Any ideas would be welcome.  Thank you.

Have you looked into Kaizen foam?

It's a DIY foam but much higher quality than the pluck and pull crap we are used to. Much closer to laser cut quality. Also can't beat the price. 

I used that for my CineLive sled and I'm super happy with it. Quaid Cde Baca used it too in LA.

Thank you Victor but I am not looking to do this myself.  I'm looking for a good case company in Los Angeles that does solid work with foam.  Any thoughts?

Your best bet is to contact Pelican directly. They use a local company to design and cut their custom foam. I forgot the name of the company, but Pelican will put you in contact with them.

From what I remember, they didn't charge us a fee to design the case. You just give them the equipment (or measurements), and they'll do the rest.

I'll put in another plug for Charlie at Mastercases.  He has been able to finish jobs quickly for me in the past and also has a whole database of previously made foam cutouts from past jobs.

Hi guys,


Jason Cases does work for lots of people out in L.A. Custom cases can vary in the finishing time, but they're really on top of things lately and can get cases out quick.

Hope that helps!
