To America’s Shooting Team athletes, very little is as important to them as the gun they use in competition to chase their Olympic and Paralympic dreams, which is why USA Shooting has partnered with SKB Cases as the team’s Official Gun Case and Gun Protector through 2020.
USA Shooting Team athletes will place their trust and confidence in SKB Cases while transporting their pistols, rifles and shotguns to ranges throughout the country and all around the globe. The first major event will be the International Shooting Sport Federation World Championships later this summer in Changwon, South Korea.
“Our athletes deserve to know that their equipment is well-protected and secure while representing America’s shooting sports culture in matches throughout the world,” said Kevin Neuendorf, Director of Marketing Communications for USA Shooting. “The competition is fierce and the travel is demanding and every athlete will appreciate the peace of mind that comes in knowing SKB is protecting that piece of equipment that is their livelihood.”
“As a small, California-based company that has spent over 40 years establishing its global reputation as manufacturer of the best cases in the world, SKB couldn’t be prouder to be an official sponsor of the USA Shooting Team, whose elite athletes walk a similar path toward the American Dream,” said Robert Wilkes, Chief Operating Officer of SKB Cases. “Our protective cases will help provide one less thing for these athletes to worry about —enabling them to focus instead on confidently meeting their challenges in pursuit of success.”
Founded in 1977, SKB remains family-owned and operated to this day, and has expanded its operations into three factories with over 300 employees. SKB’s innovative solutions can be found on all seven continents where they help diverse industries around the world to protect their livelihoods, build better products, and get the job done—usually in the toughest environments where protection of sensitive equipment is mission critical. Top companies in music, photography, sports, aerospace, military and more all look to SKB for support.
SKB cases used by USA Shooting Team athletes will include a customized USA Shooting logo on the outside of each gun case.
