Petards, Inc. selected Baltimore for its headquarters because of its centralized location and convenient access to a number of key markets, including federal, state and local governments.
“With the establishment of a U.S. headquarters, we are underscoring our commitment to the North American marketplace,” said Frank Baitman, president of Petards, Inc. “Our experience in Europe enables us to offer government and commercial clients valuable insights into using surveillance technologies to achieve their business objectives.
