Aetrex Worldwide Inc. has formed Aetrex Canada, a new division. The move will enable the Teaneck, N.J.-based company to provide retailers there with better prices and faster delivery.

"We now have a full-time team dedicated to the Canadian market," CEO Larry Schwartz said in a company statement. "This will provide easier access to all our marketing programs, including our patented iStep technology, which is proven to help drive revenue by increasing footwear and orthotic sales."

Additionally, through its partnership with UPS’ NRI division, all orders will have free freight and duties, guaranteed through the end of the year.
