Not long after announcing the acquisition of Skullcandy, the Irvine-based accessories company moves on and buys Griffin Technology for an undisclosed amount.

Irvine-based accessories maker Incipio Group keeps getting bigger and now, not long after taking over popular budget headphone maker Skullcandy, this tech conglomerate has just acquired Griffin Technology as well. Next to its eponymous brand, Incipio's portfolio currently includes names like Braven, Incase, and ClamCase.

According to Incipio's founder and CEO Andy Fathollahi, "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."

Griffin Technology will keep its Nashville global headquarters and will remain a stand-alone brand. This means that consumers will continue to have access to Griffin accessories as in the past and nothing much will change from their point of view. As it usually happens when such deals take place, the financial terms of this corporate acquisition have not been disclosed.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
