Known as an innovator and leader of protective solutions for the world's foremost handheld distributors, manufacturers, and wireless carriers, OtterBox has got technology covered!
OtterBox was created in 1998 starting off with a product as simple as a box and built upon the fundamentals of perseverance, hard work, and creativity. Their cases are dedicated to every klutzy, graceless, spontaneous, chaotic individual who has ever broken at least one device or valuable because of an active lifestyle and like their customers, they've been there too!
Founder and CEO Curt Richardson's innovative spirit has promoted the development of their product lines from waterproof boxes to four lines of cases specific to devices for today's hottest technologies.
Just like an otter's fur, their original line of cases is completely waterproof. So to incorporate that factor with the playful and fun disposition of the animal, their CEO and his wife thought of the name OtterBox while brainstorming names for the company during a drive to Denver, CO.
Like the animal that is their namesake, they are a fun, creative bunch that enjoys working hard and playing hard too. They have in-house human resources, sales, customer service, accounting, public relations, marketing, engineering, web design, graphics, supply chain, and their own warehouse.
OtterBox is based in one of America's greatest cities - Fort Collins, CO. Ranked by Money Magazine 1st in 2006 and 2nd in 2008 among the "Best Places to Live", Fort Collins has quick access to the Rockies for snowboarding, biking, hiking, running, kayaking, boating, skiing, camping, and other outdoor activities. Many of them use their own cases every day around town, in the office and outdoors and serve as the perfect "guinea pigs" for the testing of new products.
Throughout the years, they have listened to the feedback of customers and attribute the evolution of their products to consumers who've challenged them to take the idea of protective cases to a whole new level.
At OtterBox, isn't one person innovating the world of mobile cases, it's a whole team!
