Structuring Our Businesses

Lonza is organized as a market-oriented, innovation-driven solution provider pre-dominantly operating a customer-centric «business-to-business» model. We serve a number of highly attractive and growing markets related to our strategic focus on patient and consumer needs in prescription, prevention, protection and preservation.

Lonza’s organizational structure enables a dedicated approach to our target markets and allows us to serve our customers’ needs in the most efficient way possible. In 2018 Lonza operated with two segments – Pharma & Biotech and Specialty Ingredients.

As of 1 January 2018, following the integration of Capsugel, the Specialty Ingredients segment began to operate in: a Consumer Health division, a Consumer & Resources Protection division and a Water Care business unit.

Capsugel has been fully integrated in 2018 into both segments with former Capsugel’s pharma capsules business and dosage forms and delivery systems services being part of Pharma & Biotech’s small-molecules businesses and former Capsugel’s consumer health and nutrition businesses being part of Lonza’s Consumer Health & Nutrition business unit within the Consumer Health division.
