SLAPPA Distribution, maker of CD storage cases, laptop bags, backpacks and gamer cases, today announced they have extended their partnership agreement with professional eSports organization Fnatic, and that together the companies will develop more co-branded products for gamers.
"Our first year together was very positive, and both companies feel we have built very good momentum, so extending the partnership was a no-brainer," said SLAPPA President Dominick Martinetti. "It truly was gratifying to be part of the tremendous success Fnatic had in 2009, and we're proud of everything they accomplished. It was also very cool to see how their players responded so positively to SLAPPA gear. Right now we have a number of new products in the works together, and we're very excited to launch this new gear, which we expect will hit the market in the April timeframe."
Business Development Manager of Fnatic, Neil Kirk added, "As we've proven in the last twelve months our relationship with SLAPPA has been extremely positive and we are delighted to extend this into 2010. SLAPPA designs and creates professional gear for individuals that demand high quality and long lasting items, which is exactly the same for the Fnatic players. It was great to design some custom branded products and see how positively our players responded to them. We are now very excited to be working on a number of new branded products that we will launch this May, adding to the SLAPPA Fnatic AURA LAN bag we released in 2009. Our expertise, coupled with SLAPPA's knowledge and professional gear will bring to market a great set of products for gamers and Fnatic fans. Last year was a huge success for Fnatic and SLAPPA was a big part of that, and we look to continue this relationship and the successes it brings."
SLAPPA has established itself in the DJ and Pro-Audio world with its award winning HardBody PRO CD cases, DVD cases, and over the past 2 years has greatly expanded its product line to include gear bags for professionals, backpacks and laptop bags for travelers and students and most recently launched a complete line of laptop sleeves, netbook sleeves and laptop handbags for ladies. In 2009 the company stepped up its focus on gamer bags and cases, launching new gamer backpacks and laptop bags and recently adding an artist collection of PSP cases and DS cases that bring unique designs to its gamer series.
SLAPPA's line of cd cases, dvd cases, laptop bags and backpacks are made with the highest quality materials, unique designs and patented technologies that when combined together, "break the mold" in a category otherwise flooded with mundane products.
