About Us


Southwest Sterilizers, LLC, was founded on the principles of providing quality solutions to

the dental, laboratory, medical, tattoo/piercing, and veterinary communities in New Mexico and

throughout the Southwest. It is our mission to build lasting relationships with everyone with

whom we conduct business. We choose to do business in a way that allows us to hold our heads

high in the community and to be proud of every job that bears our name. It is because of this

choice that we require ourselves to do the right thing, the right way, every time.


Our roots are in New Mexico, and our core values underlie everything we do.  As the only licensed, bonded, and insured Autoclave contractor in NM, our focus has been and will continue to be:  To provide honest, courteous, professional service to both our Clients and our Community.


What Makes Us Unique:

  • We are the only NM licensed contractor for Autoclave Repair in the State.
  • We “sell” you the services or equipment you need, nothing more.
  • Customer Service is so important to us that it’s included in our Mission Statement. We don’t just talk about good customer service: We deliver good customer service.


Shawn Wright, Owner

Shawn started Southwest Sterilizers in 2013 after seeing a strong need in the market for specialists in sterile processing and autoclave services.  Over a decade of experience in the manufacturing of Biopharmaceutical sterile injectables provided Shawn with a healthy respect for the complexity of sterilization and sterile processing as well as for maintaining impeccable process documentation.

At heart, Shawn is a “machine guy” yet he also really enjoys conducting Trainings and educating his customers about autoclaves and their role in staff and patient safety.

Stephanie Wright, Operations

With 20 years of business experience behind her, Stephanie is able to support Southwest Sterilizers by developing strong operational processes that allow the business to run smoothly and allows the technicians to focus on what they do best.

Just as comfortable having a conversation about 18th-century British literature as she is developing complex Excel spreadsheets, Stephanie brings a unique and broad skill-set to Southwest Sterilizers in support of its mission.
