Former Lonza Division LSI Rebrands as Arxada

22.10.2021 - The former Lonza division LSI, a specialty chemicals company active in Microbial Control Solutions (MCS) and Specialty Products Solutions (SPS), will operate under the name Arxada in the future.

The new name follows the company’s launch as an independent business in July 2021, after the completion of the sale of Lonza Specialty Ingredients from Lonza to private equity firms Bain Capital and Cinven.

The name Arxada, the company explained, derives from arx and arcis, the Latin words for citadel and fortress. In the same way that a citadel acts as a stronghold or protector, Arxada wants to provide solutions that strengthen the performance of its customers and their products, and help to protect people, places and the planet.

Commenting on the new company name, Marc Doyle, CEO of Arxada, said: “This new identity signals our intent to transform the Company as we build on our longstanding heritage of innovation and pioneering technology to enhance our presence within the microbial control and specialty chemicals markets. Our new corporate identity demonstrates our commitment to enable our customers and their products to be more efficient, more effective, more responsible and more sustainable.”

The re-brand, Arxada said, reflects the company’s passion for delivering high performance and realizing potential, both for its customers and within its own operations. Arxada’s industry-leading regulatory expertise and deep understanding of each customer’s markets and evolving requirements, combined with its broad portfolio of science and technology capabilities, enable it to provide customized solutions which help customers perform at their best.
