"Our company has always been dedicated to innovating in ways that will enable our customers to get more from their mobile technology," said Otter Products CEO Jim Parke.

"Brydge has the same philosophy, and we recognize that we can tap into 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."

Brydge is known for its high-quality keyboards, docks and multiport hubs that are designed to enhance productivity, connectivity and efficiency at home, the office, the classroom and beyond.

OtterBox is the No. 1-most trusted brand in smartphone protection and has an extensive portfolio of protective cases as well as screen protection and mobile power products. 

This new agreement not only allows Otter Products and Brydge to leverage each other's distribution networks, it will also facilitate future co-developed innovations via the OtterBox brand.

"Brydge has always admired OtterBox,” said Nick Smith, co-CEO and founder of Brydge.

“From modest roots to what is now a global brand and leader, we have always felt there is a natural synergy with our values, vision and products. This partnership represents a huge opportunity for both brands to continue to drive growth and success in the market."
