Environmental Containers Systems was founded in 1954 and has since evolved into an internationally respected designer and manufacturer of reusable containers and enclosures for equipment of all kinds. The company is also an experienced custom molder of thermoplastic and thermoset composite parts and boasts the possession of one of the nation’s largest compression molding presses. Other techniques for molding thermoplastic materials and fabricating metal products add diversity to the core capabilities at ECS. The company’s reputation for high quality products is maintained by the efficient use of sophisticated manufacturing management systems and by a dedicated team of employees. With two locations in Grants Pass, and Medford, Oregon, the company has maintained strict compliance with environmental quality regulations and is recognized for its service to community and country.
ECS has been a recognized leader in the protective enclosure industry because of its unique engineering-based approach to container design. With a major emphasis on performance and quality, ECS continually strives to identify innovative new products and applications, thanks in large part to an imaginative and forward thinking team of engineers.
For more than 60 years, ECS has relied on its engineering and tooling expertise to address unique applications. The company set the standard in 1969 when it invented and patented the 19" Rackmount case concept, revolutionizing electronic systems deployment and operation. With many of ECS' reusable containers specifically designed for sensitive military electronic and other equipment, ECS products are explicitly designed and manufactured to meet stringent applicable military standards and specifications. The engineering and design team maximize their aptitude by performing ongoing Solidworks training and running theoretical scenarios on Finite element analysis simulation software. ECS also has an on-site testing lab that is utilized by the research and development team for environmental, vibration and drop testing.
ECS is the point of contact from start to ship. We have our own machine shop to custom manufacture all tooling, as well as families of electronic equipment enclosures, transit cases, EMI/RFI shielded products, conductive thermoplastic moldings and proprietary end-user products. We control the quality of all of our cases produced, providing the consistency expected from any product purchased. Certification and testing is available for all appropriate U.S. MIL Specs including MIL-STD-108, MIL-T-28800, MIL-C-4150, and MIL-T-3734, quality assurance system MIL-I-45208, and test procedures meeting FED-STD-101 and MIL-STD-810.
ECS features four product lines: Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester (FRP), Thermo-Stamped Composites (TSC), Rotationally Molded Polyethylene (Rotomold) and Vacuum Infused Process (VIP). Our team of engineers and drafters look at each application separately and decide which material will provide the optimum amount of protection.
