Otter Products, the company behind the popular accessory manufacturer OtterBox, today announced a strategic investment in Brydge, a company known for its keyboard mids and other iPad and Mac accessories. Otter Products and Brydge will now collaborate to develop new products.
OtterBox offers a variety of accessories for mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. The company has its own series of cases, screen protectors, wireless chargers and more. Earlier this year, we marked the first iPhone screen protector with antimicrobial glass made by OtterBox and approved by EPA.
Brydge also has its own range of accessories, but they are more focused on the iPad and Mac. More specifically, the company has one of the most popular third-party iPad keyboards, including a new model with a built-in trackpad.
Thanks to a strategic investment made by Otter Products, both companies will now develop new accessories together. Jim Parke, CEO of Otter Products, pointed out that OtterBox and Brydge have similar philosophies, so that customers can expect good products to come in the future.
Our company has always been dedicated to innovating in ways that enable our customers to get more out of their mobile technology. Brydge has the same philosophy, and we recognize that we can leverage the strengths of each organization to be even more effective in achieving this goal, especially as all of our relationships between home, school, and work are evolving.
New products will be launched under the OtterBox brand, and the agreement between the two companies also allows them to share their distribution networks. Otter Products has not discussed when these new products will be available.
