PITTSBURGH, Pa. — PetGuard announced May 22 it relocated its headquarters to Sewickley, Pennsylvania and partnered with Team Hardinger, a third-party trucking and warehousing company based in Erie.

The logistics company will design a customized warehousing and distribution solution to support PetGuard’s business and enable growth, said Barry Sherman, director of business development and marketing at Team Hardinger.

“Our ability to scale our solution and integrate with their software platform allows PetGuard to focus on product development, production, and their customers. We’re proud and excited to be a part of their journey,” Sherman added.
