Lonza Personal Care has expanded the scope of its relationship with California-based Deveraux Specialties, LLC, making Deveraux the exclusive third-party distributor for Lonza’s full line of personal care products—actives, functional ingredients and preservatives—in the western US.
The accord covers Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
The broadened authorization for Deveraux is consistent with Lonza Personal Care’s growth strategy, according to Todd Miller, North American sales director. “Deveraux’s appreciation for value-selling, their deep knowledge of specialty markets, and their proven commitment to applications development are exemplary,” Miller said. “The Deveraux name is well known and respected. We’re confident their expanded role will benefit customers throughout the Western region.”
“Our team is excited by this expanded scope,” said President Andy Deveraux. “Lonza’s personal care line is a good fit with our existing portfolio. We appreciated their confidence, ongoing support and technical expertise. It is a great partnership.”
