Lonza is a leading global provider of integrated healthcare solutions. We focus on enabling treatments that prevent illness, support healthier lifestyles and create a healthy environment. We optimize scientific innovation and manufacturing technology to enable our customers to serve their patients and consumers.

Lonza Group comprises two segments:

  • In Lonza Pharma, Biotech & Nutrition, we work to improve health by supporting our customers to deliver innovative solutions to prevent, treat or even cure disease. The segment provides a wide range of services and products from early phase discovery to custom development and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients to innovative dosage forms for the pharma and consumer health and nutrition industries.
  • In Lonza Specialty Ingredients, we focus on microbial control for personal care as well as for the protection of our homes, schools, workplaces and environment from mold and other potential pathogens. We also offer custom development and manufacturing of specialty chemicals and composites to support the electronics, aerospace, food and agrochemical industries.

Our two segments are united by advanced manufacturing and quality control systems, superior regulatory expertise, in-depth market knowledge, technical customer support and world class R&D capabilities. Our scale and resources mean we can provide a one-stop solution for our customers to help people get well, feel well and stay well.

Lonza is a company of high-performing teams and of individual employees who are encouraged to act with an entrepreneurial spirit on behalf of customers. Founded in Switzerland in 1897, Lonza today has more than 15,500 employees and operates 120 sites and offices in more than 35 different countries. Our business benefits from global supply chains, but we have worked to maintain the agility to address marketplace needs on a local level.

A firm commitment to responsible business and sustainability underpins everything we do. Minimizing our impact on the environment, conserving energy and natural resources, and helping to improve life quality are all central to our culture. Lonza's Vision Zero initiative is a prime example, as we strive to achieve zero workplace accidents and injuries, zero environmental incidents, zero product transportation incidents and zero manufacturing process incidents. We work to attract and retain the best talent, to make a meaningful difference to our own business, as well as the communities in which we operate.
