WPTouch is a household name in the WordPress community, appearing on many “must-have” plugin lists, and 8 years after its creation it still ranks among the top WordPress plugins by number of active installs at 300,000+. WPTouch comes in both a free and paid pro version. WPTouch is based out of Hamilton, co-founded by Dale Mugford and Duane Storey.
The founders explained the decision to be acquired in a recent news update:
Some people might not realize, but weâ€™ve been working on WPtouch for over 8 years. We realized early on that, as WPtouch continued to grow, it would eventually outgrow our comfort levels in terms of scale. Donâ€™t get us wrong, this is a great problem to have! But it led us to begin a casual search several years ago for a partner or owner who would be willing to take on WPtouch and continue our work.
Only now have we found the right fit. In SureSwift, we found a great partner and excellent steward for WPtouch. SureSwiftâ€™s focus is on acquiring mature, profitable businesses, and their expertise and vision promises to carry WPtouch forward in a way that we can be proud of. We are excited that WPtouch has a bright future.
