McKesson Medical-Surgical to build 316,100-square-foot warehouse by fall, keeping jobs in California

Roseville, CA — After a multi-state selection process, McKesson, the oldest and largest healthcare company in the nation, selected Roseville, Calif., to locate a 316,100-square-foot, state-of-the-art warehouse distribution facility.

McKesson Medical-Surgical, an affiliate of the McKesson Corporation, expects to employ 166 people in logistics and material handling jobs at the facility. The company plans to start hiring this fall. The site is expected to be operational in mid-2018.

The project involved a joint effort between the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, the City of Roseville and Panattoni Development Company. The partnership exemplified the kind of effort needed to attract key industries to the Sacramento region.

McKesson evaluated other markets out of state but valued remaining in the greater Sacramento area, where McKesson Medical-Surgical currently operates two smaller distribution centers which will be consolidated into the new facility. Additionally, the Sacramento region provides access to key customers for McKesson Medical-Surgical.

“This project is a key part of our Bay Area California Jobs Matter Campaign,” Greater Sacramento CEO Barry Broome said. “We are glad to see McKesson’s investment into Roseville, one of our flagship communities. Additionally, this is another win for our national site-selection program, which has our region building a national brand.”

The City of Roseville completed the permitting process in a record time of 143 days, which included planning and entitlements, environmental review, plan review, and permit issuance. Roseville continues to emphasize speed and efficiency in order to help companies get up and running.

“The most critical selection component was Roseville’s unique and concurrent permitting processes, which allowed us to receive our planning entitlements, environmental review, building and civic plan approval in 143 days,” said Tim Schaedler, Northern California Partner for Panattoni Development Company. “For a project of this scale, that’s a lightning-fast turnaround in the development world.”

“We’re pleased to grow our presence in northern California,” said Brad Hilton, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience for McKesson Medical-Surgical. “Locating in Roseville provides greater access to our customers and key markets and enables the expansion of our private fleet operations in the region. It also creates an opportunity for us to continue to invest and add to our workforce in a region where we’ve operated for many years.”

“Health care is Roseville’s No. 1 industry sector, and we’re thrilled to welcome McKesson to our region,” said Mayor Susan Rohan. “We look forward to having both the company and its employees contribute to our community’s prized quality of life.”

McKesson Medical-Surgical delivers medical supplies and pharmaceuticals to healthcare providers across the spectrum of care through its national distribution network and the industry’s largest private fleet.
