PRIMUS Sterilizer was launched in 1990 through the acquisition of an ASME certified pressure-vessel factory in Great Bend, Kansas. At that time, PRIMUS set forth on its path to growth as the only major USA manufacturer of steam sterilizers with the ultimate goal of becoming the premier steam sterilizer manufacturer in the industry. In January, 2007 the PRIMUS senior leadership team and Blue Sage Capital completed a management-led buyout forming PRIMUS Sterilizer Company, LLC.

PRIMUS continues excellent growth today through the development of high quality and innovative products.In today's chaotic, ever-changing world, the need for simple, functional designs is more evident now than ever before. As an established leader in the steam sterilizer industry, PRIMUS has always maintained its philosophy of building simple, yet versatile and highly reliable sterilizers, all manufactured in the USA.
