Arxada enhances customer and market focus in Microbial Control

The CMC business will encompass the Hygiene, Home and Personal Care, Wood Protection, Crop Protection, and Food, Beverage and Water business lines and will be led by Jérôme Charton. He joined Arxada from Ecolab, where he was President of the international organisation, with responsibility for the company’s operations outside of North America.
