Gator was founded in 2000 by Jerry Freed and Crystal Morris in Tampa, Florida, starting with plastic guitar cases. They expanded to various case solutions, and grew an OEM division for custom cases. Acquisitions include Protechtor Cases in 2008, enhancing percussion market reach and U.S. manufacturing, and Viking Cases in 2015 for custom flight cases. In 2018, they acquired Levy's Leathers. Gator continues to innovate with new product lines like Frameworks stands, and operates from a state-of-the-art facility in Indiana.
