Jan '13
Solvay presented the new structure for its business activities and leadership team. The Group has redesigned its organization, with a far-reaching review of business processes and corporate functions, and a focus on simplifying and decentralizing its management structure. 
 
Thanks to these changes, Solvay is more agile and in a better position to seize growth opportunities, whilst keeping customer focus, operational excellence, corporate social responsibility, and innovation in sustainable chemistry, at the top of its priorities. 
 
“Today’s Solvay is the result of the successful integration of Solvay and Rhodia and an extensive transformation. Few groups would have been able to bring about such major changes in such a short period of time. Through the mobilization of our teams, we have managed to convert the two former companies into one of the ten largest chemical companies worldwide. 
 
Our new signature, Asking more from chemistry, is more than a pledge; it’s a vision and a challenge to which we are fully committed,” said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, Chairman of Solvay’s Executive Committee. 
 
Five Operating Segments showcasing Solvay’s areas of expertise:
Showcasing Solvay’s areas of expertise, the new business organisation has five Operating Segments.

Reflecting the entrepreneurial spirit embedded within Solvay’s culture, the GBUs focus on customers and markets, and are endowed with the relevant operational levers to execute their strategic roadmaps.
