After less than a year in operation, Medline Industries’ 600,000-square-foot adult incontinence products facility in Lithia Springs is expanding due to demand, reports the Douglas County Sentinel.
The facility on Riverside Parkway, which opened in March, has expanded capacity by 50 percent and added a fifth machine, bringing total investment in the facility to more than $100 million, the newspaper reports.
In addition, Medline has hired about 120 new employees and plans to add more positions to support the additional production lines, the paper said.
Medline, headquartered in Illinois, is the nation’s largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare products, the Sentinel reports.
The Douglas Co. facility makes the company’s FitRight line of products.
