Headquartered in Kansas City, Kansas, Aratana brings decades of human health and biotechnology experience to animal health with the aim to offer innovative therapeutic solutions that can help improve and extend the lives of pets.” – Square 1 Bank. News. Accessed Feb. 5, 2019.

People are often shaped by where they come from. Organizations can be shaped by where they come from, too. For example, Aratana is a success story of Kansas City, but it’s also successful because of Kansas City.

Part of Aratana’s success must be credited to its location in the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor. For example, a 2016 Seeking Alpha article writes, “Aratana was created in 2010 by a leadership team that is steeped in their experience and knowledge in dealing with animal health care issues. They are based in the Kansas City, Kansas area, the focal point region for many of the major animal healthcare companies in the United States.”

Aratana’s own leadership also mentions the benefits of starting in Kansas City.

Aratana’s Kansas City location made the organization what it is today. Orbis Biosciences® is proud to be headquartered in Kansas City. Without Kansas City, Orbis also would not be the organization it is today.
