Fighting infections, adding jobs

Local News

Cantel Medical is expanding its business in Rush to create new jobs locally.

Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance TJ Klier discussed the company and its growth Wednesday during our Greater Rochester Enterprise Why ROC interview on News 8 at Sunrise.

“Cantel Medical is a global leader in infection protection and control,” explained Klier. “We produce a lot of sterilization products – pouches, masks for dentists and surgeons.”

Klier said there are two factors in the company’s growth. “We’re growing organically and through acquisitions. Over the course of the past 15 months we have completed four transacations, four acquisitions, and the 100-thousand square foot expansion is going to help with that – give more space for our employees and to give us more space for growing organically and through acquisitions.”

Cantel Medical’s facility is located locally in Rush. “First of all, our employees up there are the reason we are global leaders,” Klier said. “We’re hiring approximately 100 new positions. They’ll be in manufacturing, production, accounting, finance, HR, compliance and quality. We look for hard-working, dedicated, loyal employees that will take us to the next level and make us the global leader in infection prevention and control.”

Despite a global presence, Cantel Medical chose its Rush location for expansion. “When we were looking for expansion space the Rush facility was the obvious choice because of the longstanding relationship we have with the community, the quality of life the area brings, and the local universities – the talent pool that we can get,” noted Klier. “We go to the schools, we present Cantel to them. We have co-ops, internships, and we pull that talent in to get our name out there.”
