Draper, Utah -- Phillip Chipping's invention of a clear, full-body wrap using a special urethane film in 2005 "revolutionised the case and protection industry for mobile devices," claims an announcement from BodyGuardz, the company Chipping has just joined.
The expiry of Chipping's non-compete clause with Zagg has allowed Chipping to join forces with BodyGuardz, which says it is the biggest competitor to ZAGG in the mobile protection industry.
Chipping commented that BodyGuardz, with its focus on the protection industry, has become a leader "when it comes to quality of products and customer care."
"Phillip has a tremendous amount of knowledge and is an innovative thinker," said president and ceo of BodyGuardz Kirk Feller. "Those characteristics, combined with his dedication to quality and customer satisfaction, make him a natural fit for BodyGuardz.
The hiring of Chipping follows two announcements from BodyGuardz: the launch of BodyGuardz UltraTough film, yet another major advancement in the protective film industry; and the release of Pure, a ground-breaking protective layer of tempered glass, both of which are available for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.
