Radio Systems Corporation (RSC) of Knoxville, Tenn., an industry leader in the development of innovative pet behavioral, containment and lifestyle products through its PetSafe brand, Invisible Fence brand and SportDOG brand, has acquired Jupiter company Piddle Place. The acquisition was finalized May 31, 2016.
Piddle Place is an eco-friendly, cost-effective alternative to disposable puppy pads and expensive dog walkers. The indoor dog toilet was developed by Kathleen Hillman, who came up with the idea for the award-winning product while working in the emergency department at a local hospital and often found herself too busy to run home to take out her dog Kippers.
“Piddle Place is a perfect complement to our current assortment of pet waste management solutions,” said Lance Tracy, Chief Commercial Officer, Radio Systems Corporation. “Behavioral issues, such as house soiling, are one of the top reasons pets end up in shelters, so we are excited to team up with Piddle Place to expand our line with cutting-edge products that help pets and their owners live happier, healthier lives together.”
Piddle Place will be the latest addition to RSC’s waste management line, which currently includes innovative products like the Pet Loo, a portable indoor/outdoor pet toilet, and ScoopFree automatic litter boxes and accessories.
“RSC has an impressive portfolio of brands and is highly respected within the pet industry,” said Kathleen Hillman, founder and creator of Piddle Place. “I look forward to combining forces and working together to improve the lives of pets and pet parents by providing a convenient, affordable solution to pet waste management.”
In addition to the indoor pet potty, Piddle Place also produces the Piddle Place Bio-Enzyme Treatment, an eco-friendly concentrate that breaks down pet waste and eliminates stubborn pet odors.
