Medline recently celebrated the opening of two LEED-certified distribution centers, an 800,000 square-foot facility in St. Peters, Missouri and a 1.3 million-square-foot distribution center in Montgomery, New York.

On Monday, August 1, local dignitaries from the town of Montgomery, the Orange County Partnership, New York State Empire State Development, and representatives from Medline, major hospitals, nursing homes and healthcare providers in the region gathered on-site for the celebratory ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Medline is a long-standing corporate citizen of the Hudson Valley, and we are honored to have the opportunity to celebrate the opening of our Montgomery facility with our 700-plus employees and community members that have supported us throughout the years. Thank you for joining us on this special day,” said Tom Fallon, director of operations for Medline’s Montgomery distribution center.

“As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, expanding the healthcare and life science sectors are a priority. Medline’s new facility supports industry supply chains while creating good jobs and investing in the community.”

The $120 million cutting-edge facility handles the distribution of thousands of individual products and devices shipped to healthcare providers across the continuum of care, such as hospitals, nursing homes, ambulatory surgery centers, hospices and physicians’ offices. Medline is also in the process of completing a 7.4 megawatt (MW) solar panel installation at its Montgomery facility. Since 2016, Medline has globally invested more than $34 million in renewable energy. Medline’s portfolio includes 2,735,595 million square feet of solar rooftop space with over 60,000 solar panels.

Empire State Development CEO, President and Commissioner Hope Knight said, “As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, expanding the healthcare and life science sectors are a priority and Medline’s new facility supports industry supply chains while creating good jobs and investing in the community.”

The Montgomery facility is expected to handle more than $1 billion in annual orders.

“The Medline project has checked all the boxes when it comes to being environmentally sustainable, creating sound jobs with benefits, beautifying Montgomery’s industrial corridor, and keeping our hospitals and healthcare facilities fully stocked and functioning even during the most critical of times,” said Maureen Halahan, president & CEO, Orange County Partnership. “They are a company with dignity and integrity and this expansion not only saved hundreds of jobs it created hundreds more.”

Brian Maher, Montgomery Town Supervisor, also shared, “Medline has gone above and beyond to support the greater Town of Montgomery community in a very short period of time. When the pandemic hit more than $80,000 was diverted to assist small businesses with grants, hundreds of thousands of dollars was donated to support several community projects and just last week Medline offset travel expenses so the Montgomery Little League Softball Section Champions could compete in the State Finals. We are proud that Medline has made a home in Montgomery and we look forward to growing our relationship for many years to come.”

The new St. Peters and Montgomery distribution centers are part of Medline’s $2 billion Healthcare Resilience Initiative, a national capital expenditure campaign that included new distribution centers, manufacturing capabilities and information technology (IT) upgrades to further their commitment to delivering superior customer service.
