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.
