Incase, maker of numerous laptop bags and cases for Apple devices, has been acquired by Incipio, the growing developer of cases, electronic accessories, and wireless speakers based in Orange County, California. Announced today, the acquisition is expected to expand Incase’s distribution and improve its logistics for further international expansion.

Known for years as one of the top Mac, iPhone, and iPod case makers featured in Apple’s retail stores, Incase even developed commemorative cases to mark the openings of new Apple Store locations, and has long maintained a reputation for high-quality products. The company was previously acquired by investment group Swander Pace Capital in 2010, and now joins the Incipio stable of brands including Braven, Tavik, and Clam Case…

“This is a monumental event for us,” says Tony Held, Incase Co-Founder and CEO. “This partnership will serve to be extremely instrumental to Incase’s growth and will provide us with the means to deliver a better experience through good design to a much larger audience worldwide.” According to the company, Incase will “continue as a stand-alone brand,” and retain its global headquarters in Southern California.
