Synergy Health Hosts New Petaluma E-Beam Facility Event

CLSA Member Synergy Health hosted a facility preview event on June 30 for the newest expansion set in Petaluma, Sonoma County, CA. Visitors toured the 30,000 square foot Electron Beam sterilization site, showcasing architectural plans and construction progress of the sterilization facility coming soon to Northern California. Based on strong relationships with customers in the Bay Area region, as well as opportunities to develop new relationships in the growing life science market of Northern California, the site (located on Lakeville Highway) will be a permanent addition of sterilization services attracting more device manufacturing to the area.

Opening in October of this year, the Synergy Health Petaluma facility will launch with a single Electron Beam with designed capacity of more than two million cubic feet of capacity. The site is designed to double capacity, based on demand and lead time of an accelerator.
