The national distributor of name-brand medical and surgical supplies and supply-chain management company will continue to serve its customers in Texas and surrounding states from the building which is located at 550 Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound in the DFW Airport Industrial submarket.

“We are pleased that Owens & Minor has elected to remain a Duke Realty tenant and continue to occupy its space in Lakeside Ranch Building 20,” said Jeff Thornton, Senior Vice President for Duke Realty’s Texas Region. “The building not only meets Owens & Minor’s space needs, but also provides them with ready highway access via I-635 and state highways 121 and 114 and is located within minutes of the airport.”
