Press release: Petix

Petix, the makers of WizSmart, has opened its first U.S. headquarters. The Brazilian-based company, which introduced its first SKU in the United States in 2017, has established an office in Westport, Conn.

Petix manufactures WizSmart Premium Super Absorbent Dog Pads. The eco-friendly company transforms more than 120 million unused diapers each year into an exclusive and super absorbent blend for their pads. The pads contain a one-of-a-kind formula to provide an odor-controlled, quick drying and leak proof indoor potty solution. The absorbency of one pad can last all day, plus the pads feature patented stay put adhesive tabs that can be used to secure the pad to the floor and the wall at a 90-degree angle, creating a perfectly placed target for male dogs.

As part of their expansion in the United States, Petix has added a new distributor partner, Frontier Distributing. The new partnership will bring WizSmart pads to a wide range of pet specialty retailers, ranging from single store independent operators to multi-store, multi-state operations, in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.

“We have experienced a great deal of growth in the recent years and opening our U.S. headquarters will help our brand establish stronger relationships with both our retail partners and customers here in the states,” comments Krister Holm, General Manager of Petix. “We’re also very excited to partner with a well-respected wholesale distributor such as Frontier. With more than 30 years’ experience distributing pet foods and related supplies, we are confident that this partnership will help broaden the opportunities in the North American market for WizSmart.”
