Brydge, known for its line of keyboards designed for Apple's iPads, today announced its acquisition of Henge Docks, a company known for its docking solutions for Mac devices.

Brydge says that it wants to create a new range of complementary devices that would "enhance the lives of individuals" and give them a way to seamlessly transition from one device to another.

"We've always been major supporters of Henge Docks and their products. This acquisition allows Brydge to accelerate our expansion into a proven category with products that are deeply aligned with our product roadmap. The opportunity to leverage Henge Docks' reputation in Apple-compatible products, as the springboard into similar products for other key brands such as Microsoft and Google is a milestone for our company and significantly increases our reach in the industry," said Nick Smith, Co-CEO and Founder of Brydge.

Brydge is aiming to be the leader in "high quality, design-focused peripherals" and says that the Henge Docks acquisition is an "exciting step towards this vision."

Maybe this will speed up Henge's production.

I never believed in a $189 dock that only fits one size and type of MacBook, doesn’t provide any extra ports and can only pass-through the ports from one side of the laptop (headphone jack is on the other side...).

I’d get the Twelve South BookArc. Different product of course, but suits my needs better and resolves some of the problems I mentioned. Not to mention the price.

Don't forget the dock doesn't work if you have any sort of case....

I have one for my 2014 MacBook Pro that is now permanently docked basically acting as a desktop. Would be nice if they were cheaper though. I think I paid like $120 for mine. It is well built though and looks nice though.

For some reason I like the idea these companies are merging - their names seem somehow sympathetic to each other.
