Arxada Expands at Visp to Continue Supplying DSM

26.08.2022 - Swiss specialty chemicals company Arxada said it will invest 20 million Swiss francs to expand production at its Visp site following the extension of a long-term supply partnership with DSM.

Arxada supplies niacin and various other nutritional ingredients to DSM’s vitamin and aroma ingredients business in neighboring Visp-Lalden. The company will also make further investments to cut Visp’s carbon footprint so as to help meet both firms’ sustainability commitments.

“This significant new investment in our Visp facility secures the site’s long-term future, helping to fuel our future growth, and demonstrates our clear commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint,” said Antje Gerber, Arxada’s president, specialty products solutions.

Arxada did not give a start-up date for the expansion. The Basel-based firm said it had already made a “significant” investment at the site last year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
