BURLINGTON, Vt., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- mophie (www.mophie.com), known for its funky iPod accessories, announced today that mStation (www.mstation.com) acquired the mophie brand name and product line. mophie is well known for its modular line of iPod accessories, rapid response, and award winning designs. "mStation has the culture and experience to grow the mophie brand. Consolidating the manufacturing and distribution of the two companies is a win-win," says Ben Kaufman, founder of mophie. The two organizations will continue to work together in product design and development for the mophie and mStation brands. "The speed and responsive nature of mophie in this quickly changing market is what attracted us to the company. We are thrilled to bring the two brands together and put the mophie energy to work," says Ross Howe, Director of Sales and Product Development for mStation. mStation will produce and distribute the coming line of new iPod accessories this fall. With the mophie brand owned by mStation, Kaufman and his team will focus full-time on the community-based decision-making process codenamed: Illuminator.
