We were lucky to hear the announcement live at the CTIA show in Las Vegas and listen to the CEO give a great talk on “The Story of OtterBox” and acquisition of LifeProof.

Both companies make great cases for phones and tablets, so a match well-made! We look forward to seeing what new products come from this relationship.

At ProClip, we carry holders for OtterBox Defender Series and OtterBox Armor Series. We will also soon have LifeProof case holders for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.

Here are a few of our OtterBox holders:

OtterBox Acquires LifeProof

It’s never a dull moment here at OtterBox and once again we’ve got exciting news to share. We’d like to extend a huge welcome to our new family member, LifeProof. We’ve brought together two fast-growing companies each with a strong global brand, incredible product lineup, intellectual property and thriving culture.

Announced at the CTIA conference today, by OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas this acquisition enables both brands to better meet the needs and demands of our customers.

Over the next 30 days, we will begin incorporating the LifeProof brand into the OtterBox family. More information about product availability and alignment will be determined at the completion of this integration. While lots of details are still being hammered out, one thing is for certain: this is a huge win for customers.

Joined Together to Deliver More
OtterBox and LifeProof both offer quality products that customers depend on for protecting their valuable mobile technology. With this announcement, OtterBox plans to continue to be the go-to choice for trusted technology protection.

OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas said it best, “The joining of OtterBox and LifeProof is a way to combine two great brands and provide customers with even more great products, services and choices for smartphone accessories.”

We all love our mobile devices, and want to keep them safe. But, we don’t always have the protection options available to us that we want. That all changes today. What OtterBox and LifeProof could not bring to customers on their own, we will now be able to deliver, together. As Mr. Thomas stated, the goal is “to create more value for our customers than we ever could have generated while operating individually.”

Meet LifeProof
Based in San Diego, LifeProof designs, manufactures and markets cases for smartphones and tablets that deliver protection, style and functionality. LifeProof is built on the idea of giving everyone the complete freedom and confidence to use their mobile devices in any environment. Designed to defend against water, dirt, snow, shock and the hazards of daily life, LifeProof lets consumers use their mobile device every day, everywhere and for everything, without worry.
