Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement after Sterigenics announced it would permanently close its facility in Willowbrook, IL:

“Sterigenics’ decision to permanently close its Willowbrook facility is best for all concerned. From the beginning, the company’s handling of this situation has been insufficiently respectful of the sincere concerns raised by people who live and work in Willowbrook and the surrounding communities. I will continue to work in Congress to make sure the EPA has the resources it needs to protect the health and well-being of all our communities.”
