Steris Corp. Relocates Global Specialty Services Headquarters To Birmingham, Alabama

Ohio-based Steris Corp. will relocate the headquarters of its global specialty services business to Birmingham, Alabama, creating 100 jobs in the region.

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 headquarters. 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.

The firm worked with the Alabama Department of Commerce, AIDT, the City of Birmingham, the Jefferson County Commission, and the Birmingham Business Alliance on its expansion plan.

Earlier this year, Steris acquired Birmingham-based Integrated Medical Systems, 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, according to state officials.

“Good companies, like IMS, are proving that the Alabama economy has an environment that is ripe for job growth,” said Governor Robert Bentley.

“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, CEO of Birmingham-based Regions Financial Corp. and Chairman of the BBA.
