The new Consumer Microbial Control unit, lead by Jérôme Charton, will service the personal care industry
Specialty chemicals company Arxada is splitting its Microbial Control Solutions business into two separate units.
The decision follows significant expansion for Arxada following its merger with Troy Corporation and acquisition of Enviro Tech Chemical Services, both completed in December last year.
Arxada’s existing microbial control business will diverge into Consumer Microbial Control (CMC) and Industrial Microbial Control (IMC).
The new structure, says Arxada, will reinforce its strategy to strengthen its microbial control business and improve customer focus.
Personal care, alongside hygiene, home care, wood protection, crop protection, food, beverage and water will fall under the CMC business, which will be lead by Jérôme Charton.
The IMC business will consist of the paints and coatings and material protection business lines, encompassing additives for plastics, metal, working fluids, oil and gas. This business will be led by Jean-Michel R Gauthier.
Marc Doyle, Chief Executive Officer of Arxada, said: “Arxada has expanded significantly within our first year as an independent company.
“Today’s changes to our organisational structure will strengthen the focus of our microbial control businesses, recognising the different dynamics of the consumer and industrial markets, in line with our strategic growth objectives.
“We will continue to develop innovative solutions to help our customers protect their products from harmful microorganisms, improve health and safety and reduce their environmental footprints.
“I look forward to working with Jérôme and Jean-Michel to create the broadest range of unique solutions for our customers in both business units.”
