The investment by HANDLE Global, doing business as Healthcare Asset Network, will bring additional warehousing and 80 jobs across the company's distribution and headquarters operations in Jefferson County.
“I’ve said many times in the fight against COVID-19, we are in this together, and few companies embody that spirit of togetherness like HANDLE Global,” Gov. Andy Beshear said of the company. “This Kentucky-based company is doing its part to combat the virus by working closely with health care providers and other organizations to meet drastically rising demand for supply chain analytics. In addition, its new expansion will provide new jobs, high wages and help HANDLE Global continue to lead by example during a challenging time.”
The Louisville-based company, founded in 2014, is led by former health care providers and manufacturing and technology executives who plan to double the company's employment by the end of 2021 at HANDLE's Norton Commons headquarters.
HANDLE's software-as-a-service business launched the Capital Cycle Management platform, "an end-to-end operating system for federal agencies and health care providers that drives services for capital planning and helps customers economically and efficiently manage their health care assets," according to a press release from the governor's office.
“HANDLE is proud to be a part of such a strong health care state,” said HANDLE CEO Kyle Green. “We look forward to continuing our success alongside other great Kentucky companies over the next decade and beyond. HANDLE will be looking to forge a stronger health care supply chain in our state and our country by bringing order to chaos.”
