Medline Opens New Distribution CenterAugust 10, 2021
Medline Industries Inc. recently opened a new distribution facility in Katy, Texas.
Medline previously operated a smaller distribution center in Katy but the rapid expansion of the company’s healthcare portfolio in Texas and the neighboring Gulf Coast states necessitated the new 1.2 million square-foot medical-grade facility. The US$100 million property is LEED-certified and features an advanced robotic picking system. With the expanded facility, Medline plans to add approximately 100 new jobs to its existing staff of 375.
“We are excited that we can continue to grow in Katy as a partner to healthcare and a local employer,” said Bill Abington, Medline executive vice president for global operations. “Not only do our outstanding team members transition with us to our new facility, but we are also situated well to expand our team in this fast-growing area of the U.S.”
Medline Industries Inc. is a Mundelein, Illinois-based distributor of medical supplies and equipment. For more information, visit www.medline.com.
