Basel, Switzerland — LSI, a global specialty chemicals business with leading positions in Microbial Control Solutions and Specialty Products Solutions, has rebranded as Arxada. 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 Group.
“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,” said Marc Doyle, CEO of Arxada.
The name Arxada 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, the company said in a press release, Arxada provides solutions that strengthen the performance of its customers and their products, and help to protect people, places and the planet.
