Fiber Cases and Lightweight Poly Cases
Cases like the current line of lightweight poly cases used to be made of fiberboard and were called fiber cases or fibre cases. When the Philly Case Company was founded, it was called the Philadelphia Fiber Case Company and specialized in manufacturing Fiber cases. Polyethylene has replaced fiberboard as the material of choice for cases of this type as it is lighter, stronger and less expensive. Many customers and people in the case industry still refer to these types of cases as fiber cases, but they are made now with polyethylene material.
