With more than 76 million cats, 62 million dogs, and 9 million aquarium owners, Americans love pets.
Over the past 45 years, Petco Animal Supplies, Inc. has built a national brand as the place where pets and their owners go, helping more animals to live long and happy lives. Today, the San Diego-based retailer has a footprint in all 50 states, with more than 1,000 stores and a growing e-commerce business.
To support the company’s growth, Petco partnered with TGW Systems to design and implement the materials handling system in its new 506,000 square foot distribution center (DC) in Braselton, Ga.
