Will the legal name of the company change as well? Legal

As Axplora is only a brand name, the legal identities of the company will remain the same.

Why did you decide to have a common name after the merger? Why not just keep Novasep-PharmaZell? Communication

Since the closing in April 2022, we’ve been working hard to define the identity and the strategy of our joint company.
We wanted to show via the logo that the parts are reassembled under one brand, which convey as well our improved offering.
We wanted a name that showed all our stakeholders what we stand for and our ambition.
Axplora, as well as our tagline “Reliable partner. Agile Explorer.” now perfectly mirrors our DNA, and the spirit of innovation that drives our teams.

What is Axplora's vision and strategy? Business

Axplora ambition is to be the partner of choice for complex APIs, and to be the trusted partner to deliver the best products on time and at scale, at the highest industry standards for the world’s leading pharma and biotech companies, and for the benefit of the patients’ needs.
For that, the group works closely to align with its partners in order to address their specific needs.
Our combined strengths will allow us to explore new innovative ways to deliver and adapt our approach, to enable our customers to manufacture the active ingredients that form the basis of new and existing treatments.
