Pelican Products

Founded in 1976 out of an entrepreneurial idea by its CEO, Pelican Products is a global leader in designing and manufacturing high-performance cases and advanced portable lighting systems used in a variety of industries, including firefighting, police, defense/military, aerospace, entertainment, industrial and consumer.

During its investment, NEP partnered with Pelican management to develop and grow the company’s international business, launch significant product development, expand into attractive new end markets, and broaden the company’s diverse customer base and global distribution. Pelican also realized a three-fold growth in its revenues.

NEP sold Pelican to private equity firm Behrman Capital in October 2004.
