MADISON – Medline Industries Inc. is opening a manufacturing facility in Waukesha County, bringing an estimated 200 jobs to the area.

Medline, a global manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies, is planning to invest $8 million into the Hartland manufacturing plant, according to a statement.

The Illinois-based company will produce infection control and prevention products at the Hartland facility, which is expected to be fully operational by May 2015.

“We know this is just the beginning of a very productive relationship with the people of Hartland and neighboring communities to make the highest quality healthcare products available to help improve people’s lives,” said Alan Weiss, president of Medline’s ready care division.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. is providing up to $975,000 in Economic Development Tax Credits for the project over the next three years. The actual amount of tax credits is contingent upon the number of jobs created during that time.
