This 25-acre facility manufactures industrial and hospital sterilizers, loading car equipment and other equipment used in the health care industry. All manufacturing operations were performed inside the facility. American Sterilizer Company owned and operated the facility until May 13, 1996. From May 13, 1996 until 2007, Steris Corporation was the owner and operator of the facility. The Facility ceased operations in 2007. The property was purchased by Erie Commerce LLC in 2008 and has been redeveloped to nonresidential area.
