Steris to add 100 jobs with Birmingham expansion

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Ohio-based Steris Corp. announced today that it will relocate the headquarters of its global specialty services business to Birmingham and add 100 jobs to its Alabama workforce.

Steris said it will spend $8 million to renovate the former U.S. Pipe headquarters in Birmingham’s Sloss Business District to serve as the new global specialty services HQ. As it ramps up hiring over the next three years, Steris will work with AIDT, a division of the Alabama Department of Commerce that is the state’s award-winning workforce training program.

Earlier this year, Steris acquired Birmingham-based Integrated Medical Systems (IMS), a surgical instrument management and clinical consulting firm, in a deal valued at $165 million. IMS, which had 1,200 employees nationwide at the time of the acquisition, continues to operate under its own name.

“Good companies, like IMS, are proving that the Alabama economy has an environment that is ripe for job growth,” said Governor Robert Bentley, who attended a press announcement in Birmingham today.

Steris worked with the Alabama Department of Commerce, AIDT, the City of Birmingham, the Jefferson County Commission, and the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA) on its expansion plan.

“This is a great example of how our low cost of living makes our region an extremely attractive option for a wide variety of businesses to grow and expand,” said Grayson Hall, chief executive officer of Birmingham-based Regions Financial Corp. and chairman of the BBA.
