MONTGOMERY – Medline, a major manufacturer and distributor of health and hospital supplies, outgrew its Wawayanda distribution center, so the company sought and won approvals to construct a 1.3 million square foot facility in the Town of Montgomery.
That is operational now and a ceremonial ribbon-cutting was held on Monday.
Orange County Partnership President Maureen Halahan said the operation is a major contributor to the county economy.
“Three-hundred and forty jobs were saved, 250 jobs were added, 1.3 million in square feet, the largest building in Orange County, New York,” she said. “LEED certified. They care about energy and environmental design. They cared about all the things that mattered.”
County Executive Steven Neuhaus called the $120 million project “a milestone for Orange County.”
