Medline opens Plainfield distribution center

Illinois-based Medical supplies maker Medline Industries Inc. has opened a distribution center in Plainfield, hiring 50 workers.

The company has leased a 180,000-square-foot facility near the Indianapolis International Airport, state economic development officials said Friday.

Medline employs nearly 6,000 people at 10 manufacturing facilities and 35 distribution centers in North America, delivering more than 100,000 different products to hospitals, nursing homes and surgery centers.

Company President Bill Abington said in a statement that Medline was drawn by Plainfield’s central location and a work force with a strong work ethic.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $210,000 in performance-based tax credits and $6,000 in training grants. The town of Plainfield will provide additional property tax abatement at the request of the Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership.
