Business Spotlight: Medline Industries

Located at 36445 Van Born, Medline’s distribution facility in Romulus has supplied Michigan hospital systems and nursing homes with medical products since 2005. Many of Medline’s products can also be found at local retailers, such as Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart and others. After experiencing years of continual growth, Medline expanded in 2019 from its former 110,000-square-foot center to the 420,000-sqaure-foot building where it is located today. The expansion allowed the company to grow its team from 7 to 195 employees.

With locations across the United States, Medline chose Romulus as a hub to do business in 2005. Medical logistics companies like Medline rely upon transportation to provide their customers with supplies, often at quick turnaround times. Romulus’ prime location near major expressways, the Detroit Metro Airport and Class-A rail lines made the city an ideal location to set up shop.

Medline also chose Romulus because of its diverse and talented local workforce. As a family-owned business, Medline makes it a priority to hire people from the cities in which they operate. Given Metro Detroit’s reputation for hard work and tenacity, Medline knew Romulus would be a great location to build and grow its team.

“Investing in the communities where we do business is top of mind for us,” said operations director Jeremy Oetjens. “We have a great loyalty to our team members and we want to see them succeed as much as we want to see our business thrive. Hiring locally and promoting from within is mutually beneficial to our growth as a company and the growth of the Romulus community.”

Medline also saw Romulus as a business-friendly environment. With city officials committed to making Romulus a Home of Opportunity for residents and businesses alike, the initiatives and resources the administration offers makes it possible for businesses like Medline to flourish.

In addition to its distribution center in Romulus and Medline also operates manufacturing facilities in Howell and Williamston. Between all three locations, Medline employs approximately 530 individuals and spends upwards of a million dollars with local businesses annually for services and building upkeep. In Romulus, the company is currently looking to bring even more team members on board.

Medline currently has open positions in Romulus and prefers to hire from within the local talent base. Medline offers competitive wages and all team members are offered full health and retirement benefits and the opportunity for growth and promotions.
