Phoenix Arizona - August 4th, 2022
Shark Fin Gear Company is excited to announce that it is having a ribbon-cutting ceremony today at its new production facility and headquarters in Tempe Arizona. The current lease began in June. Until now the last several months have been used to set up the production space, office, and showroom to prepare for increasing sales and hiring of necessary personnel. Taking a page from the pandemic playbook, SFGC will have all management and marketing personnel work remotely to reduce the overhead cost and to provide a better lifestyle for its employees. For those who do need to work on-site they will find it’s an inviting atmosphere that is pet friendly.
At the Ceremony, SFGC is going to introduce the new iFIN ™ Harness with an attached iFIN™ GPS tracking system! This is the first GPS system in the world to be integrated into a harness. Why this is so important is because many dog and cat owners have found that their animals are safest with a harness on as opposed to a collar. Some owners use both. So it is essential that a tracking system can be applied to a collar and a harness. And the iFIN™ is interchangeable between the harness and Shark Fin® Collar.
Shark Fin Gear Company is currently in the process of launching an equity crowdfunding campaign on the wefunder.com platform. The capital raised will help finalize production needs and scale up growth.

The collar design was driven by several goals. One goal was to introduce a flagship product for the new company that would stand out in the crowded pet market. The second goal was to have a dynamic design that people would be excited about. The third and the most important aspect of this design is that it can provide enough space to support electronic systems placed under the collar instead of on top of the collar like current systems on the market.
As a collar, it can obtain a sizable market share of the collar business. The quality of the leather, made by Wickett & Craig of Pennsylvania, is unparalleled in the market. The fact that all of the aspects of the collar are of the highest quality and made in the USA are all great selling points. But the size of the “fin” offers a totally unique opportunity to customize the collar. We have introduced laser-engraving options that include a vintage “Old Glory” design. We will be able to put your favorite team logo, a flag, a symbol, and any design within reason by the use of the laser engraving process.
