Starting with something as simple as a box, Otter Box was created in 1996 and built upon fundamentals of hard work, creativity and perseverance. Otter Box cases are dedicated to all the klutzy, spontaneous, chaotic, graceless individuals who have broken a device or valuable due to their active lifestyle and like its customers, Otter Box's team has been there too! The innovative spirit of founder and CEO Curt Richardson has promoted the development of the product lines from waterproof boxes into four lines of device-specific cases for today's hottest technologies. Similar to an otter's fur, Otter Box original line of cases is waterproof. So to incorporate that element with the fun and playful disposition of the animal the CEO and his wife came up with the name Otter Box while brainstorming company names during a drive to Denver, Colo. Like the animal that is the company's namesake, Otter Box is a fun, creative bunch that likes to work hard and play hard too. At Otter Box, it's not one person changing the world of cases, it's a team!
