BeamOne to open $5 million plant in Costa Rica in 2009

The American firm BeamOne, which provides sterilization services of medical implements, is building a 5-million-dollar plant in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Company president Ray Calhoun said the plant will be ready to open its doors by the end of 2008, and that it will have a staff of 24.
The main savings for customers will be the ability to sterilize products in Costa Rica instead of sending them to Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic.
The company uses E-beam technology, which allows sterilization of medical instruments within minutes through a gasification process.
BeamOne has three sterilization plants in the United States.
