Popular LifeProof waterproof cases join the OtterBox brand


“LifeProof joined the Otter Products family of brands in 2013 and has significantly innovated its product portfolio since then,” said the CEO of Otter Products. Jim Parker. “Given the continued maturation of the mobile technology industry, we decided the time was right to bring our most popular LifeProof product to market under the extended OtterBox brand reach.”

Both OtterBox and LifeProof have benefited from shared design, development, manufacturing, marketing and customer support resources over the past nine years. There will be no change in the level of support for FRĒ or warranty support for older LifeProof products, and the company will retain all of its employees and continue to grow. Transitioning all products to the OtterBox brand will allow for more targeted investment and innovation.

LifeProof was founded in 2011 with an industry-disrupting slim waterproof case – FRĒ. More recently, LifeProof has evolved its product offerings with a focus on creating highly protective cases made from sustainable materials, in line with the company’s commitment to do its part to create a more sustainable future. .

Through these LifeProof innovations, the company has reused more than 1.7 million pounds of plastic, diverting it from landfills and waterways to living a new life protecting mobile devices.

This commitment to durability, along with the popular FRĒ case design, will live on at Otter Products. Existing LifeProof branded products will be available at select retailers and lifeproof.com while supplies last and will be supported by Otter Products customer service who have always handled claims under Otter Products’ robust warranty program. the brand.
