Founded in Quebec in 1969, PLB International manufactures high-quality dog and cat food. The company develops, produces, and markets the 1st Choice and Pronature brands, among others. The company has nearly 140 employees and more than 50 commercial partnerships in 30 countries spread over four continents.


The competition and market pressure combined with the pursuit for improved profitability led PLB International to search for planning software to increase its productivity and reduce its production costs.

The Canadian manufacturer put its trust in the Ortems planning and scheduling software solution implemented by systems integrator Créatech Group with its own operational performance improvement team.


PLB International can now:

  • Synchronize production with demand
  • Reduce setup times
  • Increase the reliability of lead times
  • Work in a demand pull system and reduce inventories
  • Manage supplies based on finite capacity
