The story behind the brand.

Look closely at Heartland Industries' new brand identity.  It's striking and thought-provoking at the same time and also contains an illustration that speaks volumes.

A closer look reveals four workers sitting at a table with outstretched arms, each worker completing the shape of a heart.

"Heart" - it's in our name and more importantly, a chief ingredient of what we put into each and every job! 


Heartland Industries' core capabilities as a leader in providing business services range from shrink wrapping, packaging, printing, bindery services and bulk mailing to a variety of fulfillment services. Additionally, Heartland Industries is licensed to meet the needs of projects requiring FDA and Board of Pharmacy certification with recognition in both areas.


Incorporated in 1971 and serving the greater St. Louis community since 1974, Heartland Industries was established by the families of intellectually challenged adults in order to give them the opportunity to lead productive lives.  Currently, Heartland Industries employs over 160 workers in a 48,000 square-foot production and warehouse facility centrally located in South St. Louis County, Missouri.

Mission Statement

The mission of Heartland Industries, Inc. is to provide quality business services to each of our customers. We extend dignified employment opportunities to the intellectually challenged and to those with other disabilities.  We operate in a businesslike manner within a safe and helpful environment for the benefit of all.
