With a unique combination of infection protection and contamination control products and services, STERIS Corporation offers customized solutions for a variety of environments.

1985: Founded as Innovative Medical Technologies in 1985, in Ohio, USA, the company was renamed “Steris” in 1987.

1993: Steris entered into a joint venture with Indianapolis-based Ecomed, Inc., a manufacturer of hazardous waste disposal equipment.

1995: When the acquisition was announced in December, the company's stock dropped 22 percent in a single day. The company's revenues were almost evenly split between capital equipment sales and recurring sales of consumables, such as chemicals and other accessories.

1996: The acquisition, which was completed in May, added some 300 items to Steris' product line.

1997: As anticipated, revenues rose sharply--up to $587.8 million for the fiscal year ending March 31, a 544 percent increase from the previous year's $91.2 million. After a six-month lull, Steris re-entered the acquisitions game mid-year.

1998: In November, the company announced that its shares would begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

1999: At the beginning of the year, the company sold more than 16,000 System 1 units to more than 3,700 facilities.

2004: Steris acquired Albert Browne Ltd in September.

2012: Steris acquired US Endoscopy for $270 million.

2014: In October, Steris executed a tax inversion from the United States to the United Kingdom, via an offer made to acquire UK-based Synergy Health for $1.9 billion. The tax inversion was notable as it was the first US inversion post the new rules introduced by the Obama administration to curb US corporations moving their "legal domicile" to reduce their exposure to US corporate taxation.

2015: On June 24, Steris announced the acquisitions of General Econopak for $175 million and Black Diamond Video for $51 million.

2021: In June, Steris acquired Cantel Medical Corporation a provider of infection prevention products and services for endoscopy, dental and dialysis.
