Medline to build healthcare supply chain center, create up to 400 jobs

Medline, a medical supply manufacturer and distributor based in Chicago, plans to build  a warehouse distribution facility in North Carolina, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

The facility, which will be 660,000-square-feet, could employ up to 400 people once it hits full capacity in seven to 10 years. Initially Medline will employ 100 full-time workers at the center.

"It will be essentially a healthcare supply chain center," said Dmitry Dukhan, vice president of real estate for Medline, told the Winston-Salem Journal.

Construction on the $40 million center  is expected to begin in the latter half of this year. The building would open in 2021.
