Lonza Specialty Ingredients Legal Entity Change


  • This web page has been created to summarize the most important information and offer answers to frequently asked questions related to the transfer of Lonza Specialty Ingredients (LSI) operations and business relationships into new, LSI-dedicated legal entities in Switzerland, as well as to inform our US, Canada and Puerto Rico shipped to customers previously served through Lonza AG and Lonza Sales AG of their new counterpart in the US, Lonza LLC, - these changes are effective 1 June 2020.
  • We want to make this transition as easy as possible for you and thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to our continuing business relationship with you under this new set-up.
  • Please share this link with other members of your organization who need to know about these changes.
  • It you require further information, please reach out to your sales representative. You may also contact your customer service representative. A dedicated customer service email address has been created for general questions: customerservice.carve-out@lonza.com.

Why we are separating Lonza Specialty Ingredients and Lonza Pharma, Biotech & Nutrition


  • With the decision to run Lonza Specialty Ingredients (LSI) as a separate entity, the Lonza Group will enable the business to operate autonomously in order to create better growth opportunities for the future. As a standalone entity, LSI will be able to react to and focus on its proper market dynamics, and deliver an improved customer value proposition. The carve-out process began in summer 2019 and we expect it to be completed by mid-2020.
  • In an effort to further streamline transactions with Lonza, activities with customers of Lonza AG and Lonza Sales AG having their products shipped to the US, Canada or Puerto Rico, will be transferred to the US based legal entity Lonza LLC (see: Customers Lonza ships to in the US, Canada or Puerto Rico)

Content


General overview

  • As part of an internal reorganization in Switzerland, LSI Activities currently re-siding in Lonza AG and Lonza Sales AG will be moved to newly formed legal entities as of 1 June 2020 (see Legal Entity Changes)
  • This is only an internal reorganization step and the existing legal entities as well as the new legal entities remain part of Lonza Group
  • As part of this reorganization, customer and supplier relationships will be moved into these new legal entities
  • The new legal entities will continue to conduct Lonza’s business in the same manner as before
  • However, please be advised that we are implementing the transfer of LSI activities into new legal entities on all of our corporate and commercial LSI documentation,including purchase orders, sales orders, invoices, order confirmations and acknowledgements, terms and conditions as of 1 June 2020
  • All references to Lonza AG or Lonza Sales AG on such documentation, if they relate to business conducted to LSI and not LPBN, will be replaced by the new legal entity names by 1 June 2020 (see Legal Entity Changes)
  • All relationships you might have with LPBN will remain with either Lonza AG or Lonza Sales AG and will not be subject to change
  • In order to ensure a smooth transition, we would also ask you to consider any potential changes you need to make to permits, licenses or the timing of orders in light of the above re-organization steps
  • It you require further information, please reach out to your sales representative. You may also contact your customer service representative. A dedicated customer service email address has been created for general questions: customerservice.carve-out@lonza.com.

Customers: How we treat Customer Purchase Orders

  • As of 1 June, any open purchase order you have with Lonza AG or Lonza Sales AG will move to the new legal entity (see Legal Entity Changes)
  • This means, you will receive goods and the corresponding invoice from a different entity than the one you originally submitted your purchase orders to
  • In order to ensure a smooth transition, we would thus ask the customer to register the new legal entities (see Legal Entity Changes) as a new vendor so that you will be able to receive goods from and execute payments to the new legal entity (see Legal Entity Changes)
  • You can then either update the payment information to the new vendor in your existing purchase order or alternatively send a new purchase order to the new legal entity (see Legal Entity Changes) with a request to cancel the previous one. Please clearly flag the old purchase order number in your new order to avoid double ordering.
  • On or after 1 June 2020, we cannot accept any new Lonza Specialty Ingredients intended purchase orders at Lonza AG and Lonza Sales AG – please direct these purchase orders to the new legal entities (see Legal Entity Changes)
  • We are working to close as many open purchase orders you might have with the old legal entity as possible before the legal entity change date
  • Should you require additional information (e.g. new bank account details), please refer to the letter you received or reach out to your sales representative. You may also reach out to your customer service representative. A dedicated customer service email address has been created for general questions: customerservice.carve-out@lonza.com.
