To our partners across the healthcare industry,

125 years ago, Lonza was founded in the Swiss canton of Valais to manufacture carbide and support local industry with hydroelectric energy from the River Lonza.

Since then, the entrepreneurship of our people, the collaboration of our business partners and the trust of our customers has allowed Lonza to grow and develop into a leading strategic partner to the healthcare industry.

Today, across our four Divisions – Biologics, Small Molecules, Cell & Gene and Capsules & Health Ingredients – we work to support our customers and fulfil our purpose to enable a healthier world.

The great challenge of the healthcare industry today does not only lie in the discovery of new treatments. We must also be able to manufacture treatments at scale, while maintaining safety, quality and value. This is where the experience and expertise of our global network adds value to the industry we serve.

As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, this is our opportunity to thank our partners for the role you have played in our journey. We thank our business partners and suppliers for their engagement and loyalty. We thank our colleagues across our global network for their expertise and dedication. We also thank our customers for trusting us to bring their treatments and therapies to market. Your collaboration is an essential ingredient to our success.

Our thanks for your support and warm wishes,

Albert M. Baehny – Chairman, Lonza Group
Pierre-Alain Ruffieux – CEO, Lonza Group
