About Lonza

Lonza is the preferred global partner to the pharmaceutical, biotech and nutrition markets. We work to prevent illness and enable a healthier world by supporting our customers to deliver new and innovative medicines that help treat a wide range of diseases. We achieve this by combining technological insight with world-class manufacturing, scientific expertise and process excellence. These enable our customers to commercialize their discoveries and innovations in the healthcare sector.

Founded in 1897 in the Swiss Alps, today Lonza operates across five continents. With approximately 15,000 full-time employees, we are built from high-performing teams and of individual talent who make a meaningful difference to our own business, as well as to the communities in which we operate. The company generated sales of CHF 4.5 billion in 2020 with a CORE EBITDA of CHF 1.4 billion.

The current COVID-19 situation clearly demonstrates how collaboration within our industry is the only way to beat pandemics, both now and in the future. We have recently been confirmed as the manufacturing partner for Moderna’s vaccine against the novel coronavirus, providing a tenfold manufacturing capacity increase. The vaccine (mRNA-1273) represents a significant opportunity to change the way we protect people against the pandemic.

As other businesses face increasing economic uncertainty, we are fortunate to have opportunities for expansion at our sites across the US as well as our sites globally.

While we work in science, there’s no magic formula to how we do it. Our greatest scientific solution is talented people working together, devising commitment and ideas that help our customers to help people.

In exchange, we let our people own their careers. Their ideas, big and small, genuinely improve the world. And that’s the kind of work we want to be part of.

Join us and make a Meaningful Difference!


Quality Assurance

June 2020 - December 2020 Portsmouth, NH
“Lonza is an amazing company that really puts their employees first. The margin of error for a contracted biopharmaceutical manufacturer is virtually zero. The work environment is also great, as everyone seems to really enjoy being there, and working toward a cause that ultimately save patients' lives. Also, the fact that I got to work at the plant creating the COVID-19 vaccine was quite exciting.”
