SHINE Medical Technologies gets it's first customer

The medical isotope producer looking to make it's home in Janesville gets it's first customer.

SHINE Medical Technologies says it has entered into a long-term supply agreement with GE Healthcare, a division of General Electric Company.

Founder and CEO Dr. Greg Piefer says construction of the production facility Janesville will start as soon as the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is done reviewing their construction permit.

Piefer says he can't comment on how much of the medical isotope GE Healthcare plans to buy, only that there will be plenty left over for other customers.
