It began with Rock ´n´ Roll
In 1973, at the time of the Rock ´n´ Roll era, Amptown Electroacoustics was founded in Hamburg in the North of Germany.
Soon, the company became established as the specialist for electric and electronic musical instruments. With equipment of professionals requiring professional storage and shipping solutions, after importing flightcases from the UK for a few years, amptown cases GmbH, founded 1978, began to produce their own cases. Within a very short time, amptown cases was recognized as the preferred supplier of professional flightcases in Germany.
With only a small number of staff, the first flightcases were made in The Old Factory in Alsterdorfer Straße in Hamburg-Winterhude. Quickly outgrowing the premises, the company moved to a larger site in Hamburg-Bramfeld and kept on growing over the years.
Over time, Amptown cases became the largest and leading flightcase manufacturer of Europe. With its milestone products in process engineering like the Transflex, abs-racks and the SiP case series, amptown cases set the industry’s standard.
With the takeover of Alphapack, amptown cases acquired much needed additional production capacity to successfully produce Transflex, SiP and engine cases in serial production.
Having yet again outgrown the manufacturing site, in 2009, the company moved to their purpose-built state of the art premises in Seevetal, 25 km south of Hamburg.
With presently more than 50 workers and a floor space of 65,000 sqf, amptown cases is producing flightcases for a world wide market.
