"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."

Under Incipio, the Griffin Technology brand name will be maintained and it will continue to retain its global headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee. Products, such as Griffin's Survivor series, will still be sold.

Incipio has made a number of acquisitions in recent months, purchasing brands that include Skullcandy, Clamcase, and Incase.

Well this seems... backwards. Would have thought Griffen was the giant and Oncipio the bug to squash.

I never would have predicted the rise of Incipio. My first ever iPhone case for the iPhone 3g (I went caseless on the original iPhone) was Incipio. I bought it at AT&T on launch day. It was horrible. The edges flexed a ton and it was really flimsy. I can't believe that they've got to this point. Today they make some of the best cases, such as the NGP, and now own Incase and Clamcase, two of my favorite iPhone accessory makers. How long before they buy Belkin, Speck, Anker and Otterbox?

Agreeded.
I bought an NGP for my iPhone 5 launch week because it was the only thing I could find. (Remember case makers though the 5 would have a tapered design.) Used it on the 5S as well and when it came time to get a case for the new 6 plus, I went and looked for the new NGP.
It's thin but it does its job

Of the brands Incipio has acquired, Griffin has the best quality, which isn't saying much.
