Med supply company complex under way

Ground was broken last week in American Fork for an expansion of Henry Schein, the nearly $10 billion health care products and services company. The 100,000 square foot project will house the current 430 Utah Schein employees who will relocate from the present company location nearby.

Schein officials expect the building to ready for occupancy in the second quarter of 2014. Local employees will be a part of Henry Schein Practice Solutions, the division of the company dealing primarily with customer support, software engineering, sales and other business-related functions.

A spokesperson for Schein said that the company expects the new facility, located in the northeast corner of American Fork’s North Point Business Park, to be able to accommodate growth for the next two to three years with the space to house more than 550 employees. Salt Lake Enterprise
