As smartphones in general, but especially iPhones, have continued to grow both in size and cost, an effective protection of their screen becomes even more important. It costs somewhere between 1500-4000 SEK to fix an iPhone screen today, a fee that most would be keen to avoid.
”– We have been a leader within screen protection since 2009, protecting the screens of mobile devices. With our main factory and hub in Kumla, Sweden, we certainly give ourselves an advantage with such a close proximity to our home market of the Nordics”, says the founder and CEO Peter Körner.
Ahead of Apple rolling out new iPhone devices during September, Copter has had a busy summer in preparation for delivery of screen protection to its customers in time for launch across Sweden and the Nordics.
”- We are ready and filled our order book a while back with pre-orders, and we expect September to be a busy month for us”, says Hans Andersson, Head of Manufacturing at their factory in Kumla, Sweden.

”- At IFA we will present our screen protection for the new iPhone and will also roll-out the new Copter, that following a comprehensive rebranding exercise, is now ready to launch in Europe”, says David Malmqvist, Product and Brand Director for Copter.
