“The St. Louis Cardinals have teamed with Heartland Industries for an assortment of packing, re-packing and labeling projects. Each job has been delivered to the Cardinals on time and thoroughly completed with zero defects. Heartland Industries has earned the trust of the St. Louis Cardinals with consistency and results.”

Larry Craig, Production Manager, Pentecostal Publishing House

Three years ago we changed the paradigm of how we did work “in-house.” Almost all of our equipment was sold off and most all of our employees were let go. It was my responsibility to find someone who would be able to do the work we did in-house somewhere else. After seeking out several possibilities to do all of our handwork (gathering of multiple pieces into one packet), we decided to go with Heartland Industries here in St. Louis, Missouri. That was three years ago and the last three years have been very pleasant working with the staff at Heartland Industries. Every job they have done for us has been done correctly and has always come in on the date requested. I would highly recommend Heartland Industries to any of my business partners without hesitation. I also like the idea that the money we spend is going to help those that are not able to do what they want to do, but with Heartland Industries, they can become a very important part of the workforce. May God bless them!”
