Otterbox Looks To Grow, Hire

Fort Collins, Colorado-based OtterBox, a manufacturer of rugged and semi-rugged cases for computers and electronics, is looking to grow the firm, saying today that it is actively hiring--despite the economy. Otterbox said it is looking to hire around 20 new people at the firm, saying that the firm does not see itself slowing down, and that it hit its anticipated revenue in the first two months of the year. The firm told Techrockies that it now has 72 employees--up from 62 employees at the end of 2008--and that it is looking to hire mostly in sales and engineering positions.
