NOBLESVILLE -

A Noblesville-born smartphone accessory company has big global growth plans. The co-founders of Scooch LLC, makers of the Wingman 5-in-1 case and the Wingmount dashboard mounting device, are aiming to have their products carried in 15,000 stores this year, a nearly three-fold increase of the company's current footprint. Matt Foley says Scooch's first year, 2015, resulted in $250,000 in revenue. Last year, he says the company generated $3.5 million in sales.

In an interview on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, John Stagge said the next frontier is wallet and wireless charging technology. "We're going to be coming out with a wallet case that doesn't look like a wallet and we put some innovation for a thing we call Cool Charge," Stagge said. "This is a big topic (wireless charging) and it's a big thing for the cellular phone buyers out there in the retail stores to have something that's different that works with the current phones, because that's a big problem right now." The new line, he adds, was created by brainstorming ways to wirelessly charge phones without using magnets, which impede the process. Stagge says Foley and he worked with a local company on mock-ups for the device.

Foley says the company's growth is built on "simple functionality." He continued "people are using their phones more. The phone is the new TV, so (we're) giving them an easy way to watch their videos and use it in their day-to-day lifestyle."
