Led by Dr. Valcke, Lonza recently consolidated most of its U.S. based research and technical customer support operations at a new Innovation and Technical Center in Alpharetta, Georgia. In addition, the Company also has key research and technical centers worldwide to serve its global customers, including many in developing regions.

“This consolidation of R&D and technical support personnel will encourage greater intellectual collaboration and cross-fertilization across businesses that will result in faster development of exciting new products for our customers and consumers,” Dr. Valcke said. He added that, “The high level of enthusiasm among the summit participants underscored the value of what we call ‘TC-cubed’ -- which stands for Transparency, Communication, Cooperation and Collaboration among our businesses and research communities.”
