Catalyst Lifestyle Names ComputerWorks Distributor For Switzerland

Appointment Extends The Company’s International Reach For Its Portfolio

Of 19 New Consumer Electronics Accessories

HONG KONG and BASEL, May 30, 2014 —Catalyst Lifestyle Limited, the leading innovator of world-class protection products for consumer electronics, has named ComputerWorks AG, a leading distributor for peripherals and accessories in the Apple and mobile world for over 25 years, as its distributor for Switzerland. With its ability to combine best-in-class performance with stylish appearance and the best value, Catalyst is uniquely positioned to make its new portfolio of high-performance everyday waterproof cases and sleeves available to a global customer base with the help of its regional distributors.

As part of our strategy to go global, we have worked hard to find the best distributor in every country where our products are available and ComputerWorks meets all of our criteria,” said June Lai, CEO of Catalyst. “Our goals are mutually aligned with ComputerWorks to deliver the best and most innovative products to our customers.”

The new line of Catalyst® cases are designed to address the need for high-performance, everyday protection as smartphones and tablets become increasingly slim and made with delicate materials such as glass and aluminum. Catalyst’s all-weather case fully protects your device from snow, sand, mud, rain, messy kids or anything else you can throw at it, enabling customers to go anywhere and do more with their devices. The Catalyst® case is slim, stylish, fully functional and offers the most performance at the best value, making it the only case you’ll ever need.

We love the craftsmanship, design and precision that Catalyst injected into this case,” said Jörg Weber, Computerworks AG. “The result is a multi-purpose, high-quality, very robust, slim and attractive case at a surprisingly low price point.”

Today, the portfolio of 19 new products for everyday use including the Catalyst® case is available in more than 70 countries. Currently available for iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s, the Catalyst® case will soon be available for a wider range of smartphones.

Catalyst is also introducing a new line of Catalyst Waterproof Sleeves. Cushioned with high-grade EVA foam, these slim and versatile bags incorporate welded waterproof construction and a double lock watertight closure to protect tablets, laptops, readers or documents.

Additional products include Catalyst’s selection of accessories that increase the number of ways to use your device. The Catalyst Belt Clip, Catalyst Bike Mount and Catalyst Pro Adapter make it easy to mount and secure your phone virtually anywhere. The Catalyst Audio Adapter allows you to use any headphones and the Catalyst Floating Lanyard keeps your Catalyst® case and phone safe on the water’s surface. More soon-to-be-released accessories will further enable their owners to take their technology beyond their usual limits as they go further, deeper and higher in life. Catalyst products can be found at Media Markt and selected Apple resellers, major retailers and telecom stores in Switzerland.
