About ECS

ECS offers a full line of factory direct transit products as well as the most advanced custom packaging solutions available today. Commercial-off-the-shelf products include rackmount enclosures, medical cases, weapons solutions, shipping, storage, drawer, and footlocker cases available on demand. Military rackmount cases were invented by ECS in 1969, and we continued to set the bar for rackmount usability, compact design, and high performance.


Loadmaster® Rackmount Cases now stack with every previous rackmount model and all Loadmaster® Transit Cases. Loadmaster® rotationally molded transit cases are completely modular in all dimensions. Cases of different sizes securely stack and interlock together for maximum stacking efficiency. Loadmaster® cases are ideal for use on 463L military pallets.


We manufacture all of our tooling, molds, and cushions for all the cases we build. Our company is a third generation family-owned business and our products are proudly made in America.

ECS Featured Highlights

1969

ECS invents and patents the 19" rackmount case concept revolutionizing electronic systems deployment and operation. The original FRP composite rackmount cases begin our march toward dominance of the military rackmount case market.

US Patent Number 3,482,895

1985

We introduce our "Thermo Stamped Composite" transit case material molded on hydraulic presses up to 1,200 tons in capacity. TSC provides an unsurpassed combination of low weight and high strength/impact resistance. TSC transit cases and rackmount cases perform at extreme temperatures, making ECS cases the preferred solution for worldwide military applications.

2000

We raise the bar again with the development of shock isolated "Slide-Out-Rack" rackmount cases, offering major labor savings during equipment installation, cable routing, and maintenance.

We also develop "Stacking-Rack" electronic rackmount cases with removable, sealed TSC panels on all six faces of the rackmount frames. These extremely compact rackmount cases stack and lock together when the TSC panels are removed and are fully transportable and waterproof with TSC panels installed.

2004

ECS introduces Loadmaster® modular cases: Loadmaster® TSC rackmount cases and Loadmaster® rotationally molded transit cases, which are dimensionally integrated and employ identical molded-in stacking features. Cases of different sizes interlock when stacked together, making transportation and tactical operation of military electronic systems safe and space efficient.

US Patent 7,537,119/RE44/656

2008

Carbon Fiber Cases are introduced as our latest advance in rackmount and transit case technology. ECS manufactures these ultra-light cases by compression molding carbon fiber with enhanced thermoset resins. Carbon Fiber Rackmount and Carbon Fiber Transit Cases are extremely lightweight, with as much as a 30 percent weight reduction, and demonstrate exceptional structural rigidity.

2010

Our COTS line of cases become available with standardized features and rapid turnaround. Loadmaster® Transit Cases include Single Lid Cases, Footlocker Cases, Weapons Cases and more. Loadmaster® Rackmount Cases are available for purchase online, including specialized options like I/O panels and louvered vents, for shipment within 5 to 10 business days.
