Sterigenics International LLC was in growth mode and recognized that there was an opportunity to more fully leverage the strengths of the entire company portfolio. However, in order for customers, investors and employees to think about the company as more than a sterilization services provider, the parent company, Sterigenics International, needed to be differentiated from the business unit, Sterigenics, already widely known as the sterilization services leader. Following an extensive strategic brand development strategy project, Sterigenics International was rebranded as Sotera Health in November, 2017.


Sotera Health was a new brand that created an umbrella over three best-in-class business units. The new platform required clarity driven by a value proposition that elevated the essence of the company and created connectivity between the individual businesses. This clarity would ensure customers, employees and the industry better understood the differentiated platform of Sotera Health, setting the company up for continued future growth.
