Our Story

Our Mission – WE HELP OUR CUSTOMERS CREATE A HEALTHIER AND SAFER WORLD by providing innovative healthcare and life science products and services around the globe.

As our world continues to grow, we know the threat of infection is something we need to diminish each and every day.  That's why our story began back in 1985, when we were known as Innovative Medical Technologies.  Shortly after, we changed our name to STERIS, and we haven't stopped growing ever since.  Over the years, we've acquired a number of companies, all in the name of helping our Customers create a healthier and safer world.  Now we have over 17,000 people working, learning and growing together.  And we are doing business in over 60 countries.  Our U.S. operational headquarters is in Mentor, Ohio.  But we are adding people to our team all over the globe.  Our very next available role may be the one for you...from sales to service, to marketing to manufacturing, and finance to administration, etc.  This is the place for you to be.
