“Griffin has a 25 year history of designing, manufacturing and distributing iconic mobile accessories,” stated Andy Fathollahi, Founder and CEO of Incipio Group. “As part of Incipio Group, Griffin strengthens our product development and manufacturing capabilities, complements our existing product lines in rugged cases, power and connectivity, and allows our brands to reach a broader domestic and international audience through enhanced distribution in the business-to-business, enterprise and education verticals.”

As part of the deal, Griffin will continue to function as its own company and presumably continue its brand of popular accessories along the way. The company will also keep its global headquarters in Nashville, TN following the acquisition rather than join Incipio in Orange County, California.

Griffin’s lineup of products, not unlike Incipio’s, includes cases, docks, chargers, cables, and other power and audio accessories designed for iPhones, iPads, Macs and a range of other devices.

“This is an exciting and pivotal moment for the Griffin brand,” says Paul Griffin, Founder and CEO of Griffin Technology. “Partnering with Incipio Group provides Griffin with a strong support system and improved capabilities to continue developing accessories that people love and use every day.”

The news follows another big acquisition for Incipio back in September of last year when the company announced it would acquire Incase, a longtime bag and case maker for Apple products. Incipio also announced plans to acquire accessory company Skullcandy in June
