Suppliers of Medical Equipment in Talks to Merge

Steris PLC is in talks to combine with Cantel Medical Corp. , according to people familiar with the matter, in a deal that would bring together two big providers of sterilization products.

The companies are discussing a mostly stock deal that could be completed as soon as Tuesday, assuming talks don’t fall apart, the people said.

Cantel has a market value of around $3.5 billion, while Steris’s is around $17.3 billion.

Dublin-based Steris, which has a U.S. presence in Mentor, Ohio, sells sterilization equipment, surgical tables, and other products and services used in hospitals and laboratories.

Little Falls, N.J.-based Cantel is similarly focused on sterilization, making items including disposable products used in endoscopy procedures, towels and bibs used in dental offices, and surgical masks.
