About 5 Star Cases Ltd
For more than thirty years, 5 Star has been at the forefront of case design, manufacture and supply of high quality products to many industry sectors. 5 Star’s core market sector is the Entertainment Industry and our staff have gained vast experience in most aspects of this sector. However, many other industries are catered for, including Medical, Optical, Telecommunications, Military and Motorsport. 5 Star is particularly well equipped to design and manufacture cases for all applications. We have the ability to tackle almost any project, large or small, complex or simple and pride ourselves on prompt and efficient service, with extremely quick delivery times. Our Sales Team can react to urgent requirements and can work closely with the client to discuss specific needs. Our Production facilities are also well equipped to cope with tight deadlines. In 2001, 5 Star Cases Limited further strengthened its position by acquiring Mossman Trunks. This added the classic brand and along with it, the popular range of school trunks and luggage to 5 Star’s already extensive range of cases and foam inserts. Since acquiring Mossman, the 5 Star Group has added many new products to existing range, including coffee table trunks, bedside cabinets and laundry baskets. All of which find many uses around the home. Recently, 5 Star Group added Pro-Tect Bags & Covers to its manufacturing facilities. Pro-Tect produces high quality padded bags and covers for a wide variety of applications and industries which compliment the extensive range of case products produced by 5 Star. The company is based in the heart of the East Anglian Fens and occupies a site of more than 30,000 square feet which includes production, administration and storage facilities. It is well equipped with modern production systems including three Thermwood CNC machining centres, four automatic and semi-automatic extrusion profile saws, four hot-melt adhesive systems and three foam bandknife saws. Together with two die-cut hydraulic foam presses, extrusion profile punches and a panel laminating line, this ensures 5 Star’s manufacturing capabilities are second to none.

Press Release: 5 Star service for White Light
Founded in 1971, White Light is one of the largest production suppliers in the UK today. It offers a diverse selection of lighting, audio, video, and rigging equipment and supplies venues and productions of all shapes and sizes including theatres, schools, production companies, TV studios, museums and attractions. The company also has an extensive range of flight cases and regularly relies on 5 Star products with the packaging and transport of their equipment. As White Light has recently seen a surge in both the services it offers and the number of projects on which it is working, it is using more 5 Star Cases than ever before – with the long-lasting relationship between the two companies continuously growing.
Whilst still being the leading lighting supplier in the UK, White Light is building a similarly strong reputation in the fields of audio and video. In January, it opened its very own audio department and appointed former Sound By Design director Lee Dennison as new Head of Audio. This saw the company invest more than £400,000 into brand new audio equipment from leading manufacturers such as Clear Com, EM Acoustics, Full Fat Audio, Shure, Sennhesier and Yamaha; all of which is available to hire. White Light was also appointed as the dealer for EM Acoustics, Full Fat Audio, Shure, Sennheiser and Yamaha Commercial Audio.
Earlier this month, it also announced that it had acquired Shock Solutions; a company specialising in LED lighting and audio-visual equipment. By joining forces, this allows White Light to become a visual technology expert, as it now has both the experience and extensive stock to fulfil any client’s desires in a world where LED installations and integrated visual technologies become more popular. This merger took place shortly after White Light announced the launch of Studio 15, a new state-of-the-art studio facility based at its Wimbledon premises. Led by Studio15 Co-ordinator Holly Gough, it offers a large meeting space with video conferencing, audio and video editing suites, along with a 120m2 dedicated rehearsal space.
Jamie Wells, Event Services Manager at White Light (pictured), comments: “The first half of this year has been a really busy and exciting time for White Light. The rapid expansion of what we can offer clients means that we are utilising the full extent of our equipment range. Therefore the flight cases provided by 5 Star are being used more and more frequently”. He further adds: “Due to our vast array of services, it’s a huge advantage that the flight cases which 5 Star provides can be used for a variety of products. Out of all of the flight cases we’ve used in the past, these have the most versatility. It also makes our lives so much easier when, particularly during a busy period, we can have the confidence knowing that the flight cases we are packing our stock into will ensure that it arrives with our clients in exactly the condition in which it left our warehouses”.
