From a simple beginning in 1953, as a disposable towel/bib manufacturer, Crosstex has steadily grown to become one of the world’s leading infection prevention and control entities. Through a combination of strategic acquisitions and partnerships, Crosstex has become more vertically integrated, manufacturing more than 95% of their products here in the USA.

Crosstex is a recognized leader for its portfolio of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Dental Unit Waterline Treatments, Chemistries, Sterilization, Preventives, Nitrous-Oxide Equipment, and Single-Use Disposable products. Crosstex products are sold throughout the world in more than 100 countries. Combine this with 12 strategically located manufacturing & distribution facilities around the world and you begin to understand the broad reach and impact of Crosstex in the healthcare industry.

Crosstex became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cantel Medical Corp. in August, 2005. This relationship has strengthened Crosstex’s position in terms of its ability to expand its manufacturing capabilities as well as add to its broad range of products.

Crosstex is ready to write the next chapter in its history and in the continuation of the tradition started by the founding fathers and nurtured by their sons. Along with our loyal customers, our employees and our suppliers, Crosstex will continue to fulfill its role as a global leader of infection prevention products.
