Sterilgamma operates a gamma sterilisation facility in Rawang, near Kuala Lumpur and an ethlyene oxide facility in Kulim, near Penang.

Besides having a joint venture (JV) relationship with a second ethylene oxide facility in Port Klang, Sterilgamma also has a JV with a private hospital group providing outsourced hospital sterilisation services in Malaysia.

The acquisition will strengthen Synergy’s presence in the region alongside existing gamma and ethylene oxide facilities in Kuala Ketil.

The transaction will help to maintain the company’s ability to offer a sterilisation service to its customers. 

Synergy Health chief executive Richard Steeves said this acquisition further strengthens their position in Malaysia and the wider Asian region whilst supporting strategy to expand their international medical device sterilisation network.

"The acquisition will also allow us to explore opportunities to deliver further hospital sterilisation services in Malaysia," Steeves said.
