Sotera Health has acquired Canada-based Iotron Industries, a provider of the electron beam (EBeam) for sterilisation of medical devices.

The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquired company has facilities in Indiana, British Columbia and Alberta.

Iotron is also known for its proprietary IMPELA accelerators, which offer high-powered EBeam processing for the sterilisation of medical devices and a range of industrial applications.

Sotera Health CEO Michael Petras Jr said: “While this acquisition expands our overall sterilisation footprint, it also enhances our EBeam capabilities and the strength of our offering to the market. We welcome Iotron’s management and the strong team as they join our mission of Safeguarding Global Health.”

Sotera Health expects the acquisition to expand its Sterigenics business.
