Ohio-based green tech company rolls out comprehensive rebranding to reflect global environmental, social and governance (ESG) mission 

SOLON, OH (May 15, 2023) Locus Fermentation Solutions (Locus FS), a leading green tech company that produces biological alternatives to traditional chemicals, announced a strategic rebranding to better reflect its mission. The rebranding will be rolled out across the company to communicate a singular corporate identity. 

The transformational move underscores Locus FS’ mission to lead the charge in using biomanufacturing to provide sustainable biologicals. The solutions enable global industries to transition away from harmful chemicals and move towards a more sustainable future.  

“Our tailor-made, non-GMO biological solutions have improved client profitability while accelerating rapid achievement of sustainability and decarbonization goals across diverse sectors,” said Andrew Lefkowitz, chairman and chief executive officer of Locus FS. “The rebranding initiative will enable us to establish a cohesive corporate identity, while also showcasing the innovation of our technology and our pivotal role in biomanufacturing.” 

Since its start, Locus FS has transformed biologicals made from 100% renewable materials into alternatives that replace or reduce the use of chemicals, with better performance and cost metrics. The company’s solutions are applied to decarbonize industries reliant on chemicals, including agriculture, consumer packaged goods, energy, mining and manufacturing.

Locus FS’ commitment to transformative change is further bolstered by strategic partnerships with industry leaders such as Dow and Veolia. These alliances strengthen Locus FS’ capacity to advance 11 of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals while empowering clients to achieve their net-zero objectives.
