American based PC case manufacturer CaseLabs, known for their extremely well made and high quality cases have announced quite abruptly that they and their parent company will be closing down for good.

With CaseLabs citing Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum increasing manufacturing costs by almost 80%. CaseLabs are no longer accepting orders with the company entering liquidation after failing to secure a buyer

The company will be unable to complete their full log of case orders as well while they believe they can ship all individual part orders.

“We are very sad to announce that CaseLabs and its parent company will be closing permanently. We have been forced into bankruptcy and liquidation. The tariffs have played a major role raising prices by almost 80% (partly due to associated shortages), which cut deeply into our margins. The default of a large account added greatly to the problem. It hit us at the worst possible time. We reached out for a possible deal that would allow us to continue on and persevere through these difficult times, but in the end, it didn’t happen.

We are doing our best to ship as many orders as we can, but we won’t be able to ship them all. Parts orders should all ship, but we won’t be able to fulfill the full backlog of case orders. We are so incredibly sorry this is happening. Our user community has been very devoted to us and it’s awful to think that we have let any of you down. There are over 20,000 of you out there and we are very grateful for all the support we have received over the years. It was a great journey that we took together and we’re thankful that we got that chance.

We understand that there will likely be a great deal of understandable anger over this and we sincerely apologize. We looked at every option we had. This is certainly not what we envisioned. Some things were just out of our control. We thought we had a way to move forward, but it failed and we disabled the website from taking any more orders.

It was a privilege to serve you and we are so very sorry things turned out this way.”

This news is just downright sad for everyone while their products may have been right up there on the expensive side the customization options available and just pure quality of the products overall were just amazing. Truly a real shame.
