About Heartland Pet Food:

The Blue Buffalo Co., one of the country’s largest independent pet-food companies, has recently constructed the new Heartland Pet Food Manufacturing and distribution center in Joplin, Missouri. Blue Buffalo thinks of their dogs and cats as family members, so they believe their food should be natural and healthy. Blue Buffalo has previously delivered their high quality pet food through co-managed partnerships, and the Heartland Pet Food Manufacturing facility is their first manufacturing plant. This is their first effort to manufacture and deliver in-house, and the new plant opened its doors in August 2014.

For our first in-house manufacturing plant, ease-of-use and simple system navigation were imperative for our CMMS / EAM selection, and we needed a solution that would easily integrate with our ERP system.”
