Youthful Sumo Cases round out Mobile Edge Collection

Mobile Edge, the industry leader in innovative and stylish laptop computer carrying cases and accessories has acquired the Sumo brand of carrying cases from HS International, LLC.  Sumo, known for its young fashionable laptop case line that has been geared for the Apple MacBooks, will complement the existing Mobile Edge Collection of carrying cases.

“By acquiring Sumo, we continue to broaden our product offering as well as expand the laptop case category,” said G. David Cartwright, President and CEO, Mobile Edge. “The unique Sumo brand and original designs provide us an alternative product collection in fashion forward styles and colors that complement our current Mobile Edge assortment.  We are very pleased with the initial reception we have received for the Sumo products from our resellers.”

The company is rapidly expanding the Sumo product line and has more than doubled the number of skus being offered.  These products include a line of signature sleeves for notebook and netbook computers and a new line of products named the Sumo Lifestyle Collection.  The Lifestyle Collection will include non-computer related totes, duffels and a unique range of collapsible storage cubes.  Visit the redesigned website at www.sumocases.com or at www.mobileedge.com .

“A relationship with Mobile Edge gives us exceptional production depth and immediate access to top retailers currently buying Mobile Edge products,” said Jim Hart, co-founder and Managing Partner of HS International, LLC. “Plus, Mobile Edge brings a level of production expertise that an emerging brand could not acquire on its own; this alliance will set the foundation for our growth in the years to come.”

Mobile Edge continues to expand the laptop carrying case category by offering new, innovative and smart designs that fuse fashion trends with form and function, creating a brand that makes a positive statement about today’s mobile computing lifestyle.
