As part of our long-term commitment to supporting global medical device manufacturing, STERIS is pleased to announce the expansion of its existing Venlo, The Netherlands ethylene oxide processing facility to include X-ray radiation technology. We anticipate X-ray operations to commence at the Venlo facility in late 2020.
The expansion of the Venlo facility furthers our commitment of ensuring patient safety through a technology-neutral service offering that includes radiation and gas processing options, now and well into the future. In addition to the Venlo location, we support medical device manufacturing in The Netherlands through gamma and ethylene oxide sterilization services at our Etten-Leur and Ede locations, respectively.
Increased demand in medical device manufacturing has accelerated our plans for global expansion. The addition of radiation-processing options throughout our global network allows us to support Customers with both routine services and processing redundancy.
