Medart Marine opens Alabama office

Medart Marine announced it has a new location in Mobile, Ala.

The new facility is 35,000 square feet of finished offices and warehouse on 14 acres. The operation will house nine local Medart associates supporting five territory managers that have accounts in the northern Gulf Coast region.

“After being rocked by Hurricane Katrina, shortly after expanding into the Gulf Coast, this expansion has been in the works for some time,” Medart owner and president Mike Medart said in a statement.

Medart operates two distribution divisions: Medart Marine and Medart Engine. The marine division was created in 1972 and has expanded to four operating divisions servicing 15 states in the greater Midwest, Mid-South and northern Gulf Coast regions.
