About Us


In 1952, the “Acme Pak” Company was formed to fill a need to package precision instruments. After World War II, it was determined that over 40 percent of war materials shipped overseas were damaged or rendered useless due to improper packaging.

Originally formed as a division of Acme Pak, the first Anvil cases were designed for traveling musicians who, in the mid 1950′s, turned to electric instruments and sound systems, which were far more prone to damage in transit than their acoustic predecessors.

Anvil quickly became, and still is today, the number one name in protection for musicians on the go.

Founded by the Vallas Family, Anvil quickly became synonymous with traveling musicians due to its proximity to the Los Angeles area and its timing with the birth of Rock & Roll. Having experienced tremendous growth, the Vallasses decided the timing was right to sell the company and venture into new areas for themselves. The Anvil Case Division began its resurgence as the acknowledged world leader. Combined with the three Calzone manufacturing facilities throughout the USA, the Calzone/Anvil team represents the largest fabricated case manufacturer in the world.

Anvil products are sold throughout the Country and around the World. Our design and sales staff is the largest and most experienced in the industry. Anvil’s dedication to Customer Service and Satisfaction and its nationwide network of Sales Representatives allow Anvil to custom design cases to meet virtually any requirement or deadline.

We are excited to continue our tradition of protecting gear into the consumer market with our first product The Heritage Case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. More to come!
