Lonza’s strategy is to be the leading integrated, value-added solutions provider for the Healthcare Continuum™. Through all of our Pharma & Biotech segment businesses and many of our Specialty Ingredients businesses, we harness science and technology to serve markets along this continuum. Lonza offers a wide range of services and products from the custom development and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients to innovative dosage forms for the pharma and consumer health and nutrition industries.

We also serve the Healthcare Continuum™ with drinking water sanitizers, nutraceuticals, advanced crop-protection and growth products, antidandruff agents, personal care ingredients and biocides that deter the growth of mold and bacteria in paints, coatings, wallboard, plastic bath mats and shower curtains, for example. In addition, we provide disinfectants that combat dangerous viruses, bacteria and other pathogens in everything from nursing homes and hospitals to restaurants, cruise ships and homes.  

With recent acquisitions Lonza has been taking major steps toward expanding our presence and accelerating growth along the Healthcare Continuum™. As an example, through the 2017 acquisition of Capsugel, our unique combination of science, engineering, formulation and capsule expertise enables our customers to optimize the bioavailability, targeted delivery and overall performance of their products – getting us closer to the patient and end consumer.  

In 2016 Lonza also strengthened our offerings to the Healthcare Continuum™ by acquiring InterHealth Nutraceuticals, which now complements Lonza’s nutritional portfolio in the area of sports nutrition, weight management, immune health and pet health.  

We also complemented and strengthened our technological and service leadership in pharma markets with the launch in 2016 of our Drug Product Services business. This business focuses on one of the most challenging areas in the biopharma industries -- the development, manufacturing and delivery of parenteral products, which encompass medicines and therapies that are injected or infused into patients, as well as implantable medical devices.
