Lebanon, OH (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
E-BEAM Services, Inc. hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on December 16, 2011 to celebrate the completion of a $10 million project, which added 26,000 square feet and a second electron beam accelerator to the company’s Lebanon, Ohio plant, doubling its throughput capacity, creating new jobs, and making the company the largest contract electron beam processor in the western hemisphere. In its now 90,000 square foot facility, E-BEAM provides medical product sterilization, bioreduction and polymer crosslinking for manufacturers in the United States and Canada.
According to Company President Paul Minbiole, “This expansion allows us to serve our customers even better by adding value to their products with significantly more capacity and flexibility than we’ve been able to provide in the past.” E-BEAM offers a cost-effective method for improving plastics performance. In addition, E-BEAM can sterilize products in original shipping containers, which maintains package integrity and saves companies time and money. The electron beam process, which modifies physical, chemical, and biological properties of products and raw materials, is environmentally friendly, neither leaving by-product materials nor storing radiation in target goods.
Since 2009, three companies outside the E-BEAM Services local region have elected to locate facilities near E-BEAM to maximize access to electron beam processing. E-BEAM expects to attract more specialty manufacturers over the next several years, as the company is now prepared to double the $100 million in goods they process annually in the Lebanon facility.
