Life Sciences Leader Lonza Applies Swiss Efficiency to Sourcing
Lonza, one of the most-trusted suppliers to the pharmaceutical and biotech markets, recently decided to streamline their sourcing with JAGGAER’s powerful software. It’s a natural step from a company known for innovation and efficiency.
Founded in 1897 in the Swiss Alps, Lonza is a specialty manufacturing organization with an impressive history of efficiency and innovation, which offers a wide range of services and products including: active pharmaceutical ingredients, drinking water sanitizers, nutritional and personal-care ingredients, agricultural products, industrial preservatives and microbial control solutions to combat dangerous viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.
Lonza combines biotech expertise with chemical know-how to create technologies that address world’s most important challenges, including the need for clean water, abundant food, hygiene, disease prevention and treatment of illnesses.
Beginning in 2006, Lonza launched an initiative to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of pharmaceutical and research products through a series of strategic transactions which grew the company, expanded its product portfolio and increased the size and complexity of supplier networks.
Lonza is using Sourcing Director to reduce bidding cycles and easily identify prime suppliers. Developed with insights gained from JAGGAER’s deep experience in the life sciences market, Sourcing Director dramatically reduce costs and improves efficiency.
According to CEO Rob Bonavito, JAGGAER’s commitment to life sciences customers isn’t just built into every solution it creates, “it’s part of our DNA.”
