Divisions of R-V Industries

Since our beginning in 1974 as a custom fabrication shop, R-V has developed into a multi-faceted company by offering a variety of skills to customers in many different industries. To further provide optimal service to our clients, R-V expanded to acquire Beta Star Life Science Equipment in 2006 and Genesis Packaging Technologies in 2017.

Beta Star was founded in 1982 in Telford, Pennsylvania as a steam sterilizer service company. Over the years, Beta Star gained experience with autoclave equipment and we began to create a manufactured solution to issues we were finding in the field. Today we are a premier, full-service autoclave engineering, manufacturing, shipping, and maintenance company. We serve three industries, biomedical/pharmaceutical, laboratories, and vivarium (bulk). Additionally, we act as a single-source supplier to maintain efficiency and control costs for our customers.

Beta Star’s commitment to serviceability has led to long term reliability and to innovative data management technology, like Beta Connect. Our turnkey services provide ease of mind to customers and unites the overall quality of our projects.

The mission is to create Simple. Reliable. Sterilization.™ solutions for the customers we serve. Sterilization is built around throughput, and we provide a single-source supplier for autoclaves built with non-proprietary components and serviceability engineered into the design of every machine we manufacture.
