Burlington, Vt. — Mophie, an iPod accessory manufacturer, announced today that mStation acquired the Mophie brand name and product line.
The firm mStation manufactures iPod-docking surround sound speaker systems.
“mStation has the culture and experience to grow the Mophie brand,” said Ben Kaufman, Mophie founder. “Consolidating the manufacturing and distribution of the two companies is a win-win.” The two organizations will continue to work together in product design and development for the Mophie and mStation brands.
With the Mophie brand owned by mStation, Kaufman said he and his team will focus full time on the community-based decision-making process codenamed Illuminator. The Illuminator, according to a release, is a collaborative, Web-based process that incorporates the power of social networking to involve large groups of people in decision making activities. Public release of the Illuminator project is planned for later this year.
