8/5/2011 9:35:22 AM

MUNDELEIN, IL--(Marketwire - August 04, 2011) - Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and executives from Medline Industries, Inc. met today at the company's headquarters in Mundelein, Ill., to discuss opportunities to further expand Medline's business in Iowa.

"Medline has been a wonderful business partner over the years and we appreciate the quality jobs and the growth they have provided the people of Iowa," said Governor Branstad. "We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership."

Medline, the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies in the country, currently has its state-of-the-art customer service center located in Dubuque. Opened in 2009, the 66,000-square-foot facility is home to 350 Medline customer service employees. Back in the spring of 2000, when Medline moved its customer service center to Dubuque, it had 25 workers.

"The outstanding quality of the people in Dubuque, along with the generous support of the city and state of Iowa, has made Dubuque an ideal home for our fast-growing customer service team," said Jim Abrams, Chief Operating Officer of Medline. "There are terrific opportunities to grow our business in Iowa."
