Posted 1 June 2017 · Add Comment

Producer of rugged cases and professional portable lighting solutions, Peli, is celebrating 2o years since it opened for business in Barcelona in 1997, with the office now managing nearly 100 countries across EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa).



Peli is delighted to celebrate its 20th Anniversary in Europe. Based in Barcelona, Peli Products is the EMEA Headquarters of Pelican Products Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective cases and advanced portable lighting tools.

In 1997, Peli Products opened in Barcelona its first office in Europe and the strategic base of operations for international expansion. This office quickly transformed into the EMEA Headquarters.

Today the Barcelona office looks after nearly 100 countries across EMEA that are managed daily by an international team covering sales, finance, marketing, customer services, logistics, quality and human resources.

Scott Ermeti, Senior Vice President of Pelican Products International Business and founder of the EMEA Branch in Barcelona, said: “During the past 20 years Peli has thrived in serving a diverse group of customers throughout the EMEA region by offering products built to the highest and most demanding standards. When I started the project to drive the expansion of Pelican in Europe, it quickly became clear that Barcelona was the right choice for the EMEA Headquarters.

"Barcelona had an excellent business infrastructure, high quality facilities that welcomed new businesses and a port for efficient logistics. This, coupled with its cosmopolitan, hard-working environment and access to great local and international talent has really helped us to succeed.”
