Delivering a Customer-Centric Configuration in Lonza Specialty Ingredients (LSI)

We have worked to develop the structure of the LSI business to more accurately reflect the markets we serve. The business is now set up to be easier to navigate and more accessible to customers, with a leading portfolio of Microbial Control Solutions (MCS), supported by a division dedicated to Specialty Chemicals Services (SCS).

In LSI, we play in an attractive niche market within the Specialty Chemicals industry and we have expanded beyond our core market of microbial control actives, into microbial formulations and the much larger market of formulation additives. In the coming years, our main growth driver will be the asset-light Microbial Control Solutions business. We aim to extend our digital capabilities – not only to increase internal efficiency, but also to develop new business models and enhance customer engagement.

Growth will be supported by our strength in innovation, and our capability in fulfilling customer needs in an increasingly complex regulatory environment. We have been at the forefront of innovation and have a strong pipeline of growth projects. Concurrently, we are also focusing on more aspirational initiatives to enhance our long-term competitive advantage.
