This week, Johnson Matthey, a global leader in science that provides cleaner air, improved health and more efficient use of natural resources, reveals a refreshed brand identity. The new identity "inspiring science, enhancing life", reflects its position as a science-led company which has a major positive impact. Johnson Matthey is involved in a diverse array of science, from catalysts that enable cleaner air to pharmaceutical ingredients that improve health and its work is unified by a common theme - to enhance quality of life.

Two hundred years after Percival Norton Johnson founded the company, it is celebrating global operations on all continents and annual sales of more than £3 billion. Over 90% of the company's sales come from technologies that have an explicit environmental, health or sustainability benefit. Today, the company employs 13,000 people in 30 countries worldwide. One pound in every twenty generated is reinvested in research and development. Last year alone, Johnson Matthey invested £188 million in research and development projects around the globe.

Robert MacLeod, Chief Executive of Johnson Matthey said: "This is a very special year for all of us at Johnson Matthey as we celebrate our 200th anniversary. We continue to make significant progress and our refreshed brand identity reflects the breadth of our science and the positive impact it has on our customers, and on the lives of millions of people around the world every day."

Innovative technologies developed by the company's scientists are transforming the quality of air globally. New materials are reshaping battery technology for the automotive industry and advanced technologies are being developed that optimise the efficiency of world scale processes used to produce many important chemical intermediates. At the same time, the company is applying its expertise to create vital products for the pharmaceutical and medical industries, making a difference to the health and wellbeing of many people around the world.
