Inspiration from JAPAN SENCE
"ace." products are created under the product concept of "ideal shapes and ideal designs." These shapes and designs have a pleasing effect on people the world over, reflecting the Japanese sense of beauty much like the pleasure felt when listening to the Japanese koto (harp).
Creating these designs is like formulating silver ratios in jewelry, as it requires carefully balancing a variety of factors, such as dimensions, pocket positions, and component relationships. The designs we create are inspired by Japan's unique love of nature, formative art, and functional beauty.

Zero Halliburton aluminum alloy hard cases have been strongly supported by executives worldwide since they were first marketed in 1938. The name became universally known when they were used to bring home moon rocks after America's Apollo 11 landed on the moon's surface.
"Cases suited to any and all environments"
The cases that Erle P. Halliburton, Sr. envisioned as he traveled around the world would protect their contents under virtually all conditions. Drawing upon the engineering knowledge of his staff, Halliburton guided the development of the first aluminum cases.
He considered this to be the ultimate case, both beautiful and strong.
An original advocate of continuous improvement, Mr. Halliburton kept challenging his team to make the most durable case on the market even better. Their finding: structural integrity of the case could be dramatically increased by adding dual styling 'ribs'.
Production of the new double rib design began in 1946. This helped to establish the brand worldwide.
Today, Erle P. Halliburton's vision of "Cases that are suited to any and all environments" lives on as the Zero Halliburton brand philosophy.
