Sure, we may see acquisitions from big-name players in tech from time to time, but it's not every day that accessory makers announce new company purchases. Today, however, Otterbox has let it be known that it's scooped up Wrapsol, a film wrap manufacturer that's more commonly known for offering a slew of screen protectors for handsets, tablets and even laptops. Mum's the word on how much cash the Defender creator shelled out, but the company's CEO, Brian Thomas, appears to be quite content with its new property, saying that the addition of Wrapsol "enhances our ability to provide our customers and consumers an expanded variety of high-quality products."
