Anaheim, Calif. — Mobile Edge, a manufacturer of cases and bags, announced today they have formed a strategic alliance with Sumo, a leading consumer brand from HS International.

Under this agreement, Mobile Edge will undertake the production and sales of the Sumo collection of laptop and lifestyle carrying cases in North America.

"Our alliance with Sumo allows us to broaden our product offering and continue to expand the laptop case category," said G. David Cartwright, Mobile Edge president and CEO, in a statement. "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."

“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. “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."

Several styles and sizes will be offered immediately through distribution channels, and the Mobile Edge Web site, the company said.
