Nordion signs six-year Cobalt-60 supply deal With Synergy Health

Nordion : 23 January, 2012  (Company News)
Nordion signs a six-year contract to supply cobalt-60 to Synergy Health, a leading international contract sterilization service company headquartered in the United Kingdom.
Under the terms of the agreement, the contract extends until October 31, 2017.

"Thanks to Nordion's reliable supply of cobalt, outstanding customer support and proven logistics expertise, Synergy Health's customers can continue to count on the service they have come to appreciate and expect," said Paul Santing, Group Commercial Director at Synergy Health, which employs more than 4,000 people

across the EU, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and the Americas. "Synergy has been a Nordion customer for many years, and we are pleased to extend the relationship through this agreement."

Each year, cobalt-60 and gamma sterilization help support the health and well-being of millions of people around the globe. Cobalt-60 sources are used to sterilize more than 40 per cent of the world's single-use medical devices and supplies, such as syringes, medical gowns, gloves, and masks. Gamma sterilization can also prevent the spread of food-borne illness and harmful agricultural pests by destroying micro-organisms in foods. It is recognized as safe and effective by international public health and government agencies such as the World Health Organization, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Canada.

"This agreement with Synergy Health provides for future growth, supports our continued performance as a sterilization industry leader, and demonstrates our passion for driving value to our customers and the industries they serve," said Kevin Brooks, Nordion's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The six-year term of the contract is also a testament to Synergy's confidence in Nordion as a reliable, stable, long-term supplier of cobalt."

Nordion is a world leader in gamma sterilization technologies. The Company offers a full suite of gamma-enabling products and services, including a reliable supply of cobalt-60, complete cobalt lifecycle support, expert design, construction and maintenance of commercial irradiators, technical training and new application research and development.
