Chances are if you have a tackle box, whether it’s decades old or brand new, it’s a Plano. You’ve probably never had to deal with rusting, clanking tackle boxes – and you have Plano Molding Company to thank for that.
In 1952, Warren “Pete” Henning returned from a Florida fishing trip with the desire to improve the tackle box. Tired of bulky metal boxes that rusted quickly, Pete set out to create a lighter, rust-proof product that could withstand saltwater fishing trips. His design replaced metal with plastic, which reduced weight while still providing durable, versatile storage. This re-envisioned concept also removed the possibility of rust, since plastic resists water and rust formation.
Plano’s product line now includes storage options for gun owners, archers and hunters. They have gun cases and bow cases; backpacks and duffels; shooting boxes of every shape and size. It all started with one tackle box, but it has grown into much more. Plano takes care of you by taking care of your gear.
