Tuesday, October 25, 2016

MUNDELEIN, Ill. – Medline has invested an additional $60 million to increase manufacturing of incontinence products at its Lithia Springs, Ga., facility. The investment has paved the way for a 400,000-square-foot expansion of the facility that will ensure products can be shipped to any of the company’s 40-plus distribution centers across the country. The facility, originally opened in 2011, spans 600,000 square feet and uses equipment that allows Medline to compress briefs, helping it to reduce packaging by 20%. The company estimates more than 25 million are affected by incontinence.
