Otter Products Selected as "Top Company"

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Otter Products LLC, maker of OtterBox® premium protective cases, was selected as a 2014 Top Company by ColoradoBiz magazine. The company was honored at an Aug. 28 ceremony in Denver, marking its second Top Company award.

Otter Products LLC, maker of OtterBox premium protective cases, was selected as a 2014 Top Company by ColoradoBiz magazine.

Since 1988, ColoradoBiz magazine has evaluated Colorado companies of all sizes to honor those that demonstrate an ongoing commitment to excellence. A panel of judges from industry, academia and government consider nominations based on financial performance, community involvement and outstanding achievement.

"We're so honored to be recognized again as a Top Company," said CEO Brian Thomas. "Our commitment to delivering premium protection for mobile devices has allowed us to grow, but just as important is our commitment to creating great jobs and giving back to our communities. We plan to continue to do all of these things and more in the years to come."

Otter Products was founded in 1998 out of founder Curt Richardson's garage in Fort Collins, Colo. The first OtterBox product was a simple waterproof box. By responding to the needs of an increasingly mobile savvy customer, the company evolved its product lineup to focus on device-specific protective cases.

Otter Products was first recognized as a Top Company in 2011. At the time, it employed 350 and had just launched its charitable arm, the OtterCaresSM Foundation. Today, OtterBox is the No. 1-most trusted brand in smartphone protection and the No. 1-selling smartphone case in the U.S.[1] Otter Products employs more than 800 employees in the U.S., almost 90 percent of who are in Colorado. The OtterCares Foundation continues to make a major impact in Northern Colorado through its grant programs and as a facilitator of employee volunteerism.
