CANTON, Ohio (June 23, 2015) – Hartville Pet Insurance Group will move in July from their current offices in Canton and Copley to the former Lockheed Martin campus, bringing more than 125 jobs to Akron, the company announced today. At 26,000 square feet, the new space allows Hartville to consolidate its offices and bring both teams together under one roof. The new office will house 125 employees.
“We’re a growing company in a growing industry, and we simply ran out of space in our Canton office,” said Dennis Rushovich, senior vice president. “While we will miss being in Canton, we know we will be much more efficient when our staff is together under one roof.”
Hartville will become the first major tenant in the sprawling defense complex that is being renovated by Industrial Commercial properties, LLC. The new Hartville space includes a state-of-the-art call center that Rushovich said is vital to the company’s business.
“The new space includes a state of the art telecommunications center which is fundamental to our ability to deliver quality services to our customers,” Rushovich said. “In our business, a new call center is as important as any technology upgrade that we can make.”
Hartville is recognized as a solid corporate citizen that is generous in its community, and Hartville employees already completed their first company-sponsored “Day of Giving” in Akron. Hartville employees collected 581 pounds of food items and delivered the goods and over 40 team members volunteered at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank on Friday, May 22.
Hartville Pet Insurance Group also provided a cash donation to the Foodbank.
