Medline Industries Expands Investment in Georgia Manufacturing Plant to Over $100 Million
The firm plans to expand capacity at its Lithia Springs, Georgia, production facility by 50 percent and add a fifth machine, bringing its total investment to well over $100 million from the initially planned $65 million.
Medline officials said they already hired about 120 new employees and now plan on adding more employees to support the additional production lines.
"We've had tremendous response from our customers to the new adult incontinence products we're making here," said Dan Love, president of Medline's personal care products division. "As the population ages, there is more and more demand for innovative products like our new FitRight brief, which help people manage their incontinence with dignity."
Medline, the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of health care supplies in the United States and the leading provider of disposable incontinence products to the long-term care and hospital markets, built the new facility to produce the company's newest and most innovative adult incontinence brand of products called FitRight.
As an incentive the state earlier provided the firm with tax incentives for job creation and Georgia Quick state training grants.
