Medline building $75M supply facility near St. Louis

Medline is building a $75 million supply facility in St. Peters, Mo., near the St. Louis area, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported April 30. 

The Northfield, Ill.-based company told the publication the new facility will be 840,000 square feet, and it plans to hire about 100 new workers in the first year of operations. 

Medline said the location was chosen for its central location in the U.S. and the proximity to the St. Louis healthcare market. The company plans to begin receiving inventory at the facility in July and be fully operational in the fall, the Post-Dispatch reported.
