Cantel Medical (Little Falls, New Jersey) said that its Minntech subsidiary will relocate all of its remaining Dutch manufacturing operations to the U.S. This action is part of Cantel's continuing effort to reduce operating costs and leverage the existing infrastructure of its Minntech operations in Minneapolis.

The elimination of the Dutch manufacturing operations will lead to the discontinuance of onsite material management, quality assurance, finance and accounting, human resources and some customer service functions.

Minntech will continue to maintain a strong marketing, sales, service and technical support presence based in Holland to serve customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Cantel makes infection prevention and control products for the healthcare market.
