Information for suppliers: changes of our data in your system

Beginning of May we have announced that our Handling Automation division will be integrated, together with our brand name Egemin Automation, into the KION Group (read article). The four other Egemin divisions (Life Sciences, Process Automation, Infra Automation and Consulting & Services) will continue together with the name AGIDENS. Due to the sale of the Handling Automation division and the foundation of AGIDENS, we are changing our company structure as of the 1st of June 2015. This requires an administrative change in your systems. We hereby provide you with the necessary information.

What will change?

Egemin NV will consist of the Handling Automation activities only (automatic warehouse and distribution systems, automatic guided vehicles, in floor chain systems). This means that for clients of the Handling Automation division nothing changes. From the 1st of June, the other activities will work under the following companies:

  • Agidens Life Sciences NV
  • Agidens Process Automation NV
  • Agidens Infra Automation NV

The consulting-activities that are being delivered by Egemin Consulting NV, will work under Agidens Life Sciences NV. The Egemin International NV only changes it's name (there is no change in the VAT-numbers etc..). This becomes Agidens International NV. Via this link you find an easy to use overview of the companies you have done business with in the past and the ones you will do business with from the 1st of June. We kindly ask you to change the data in your systems: VAT-numbers, bank account numbers, telephone numbers and e-mail address.

To which legal entity do we need to deliver or send an invoice?

If you make a delivery/send invoice for an Egemin NV purchase before May 31 of 2015, this still needs to be addressed to the Egemin NV.

If it concerns a PO of Egemin NV for the divisions Process Automation, Infra Automation of Life Sciences and delivery or invoicing happens after the 31st of May 2015, you need to address this to new legal entity.

If you receive a new purchase order in coming weeks (until 31st of May 2015), the new legal entity for delivery or invoicing after the 31st of May 2015 will be mentioned on the PO. Until the 31st of May 2015, this will remain Egemin NV.

If your company has ongoing PO’s for Egemin NV after the 31st of May 2015, you will receive more information about the addressee (company and VTA number) for this PO. As a reference you will still have to use the original PO number as mentioned on the PO for Egemin NV.

If it concerns a PO for Egemin NV for services to the Handling Automation division, delivery and invoicing will remain Egemin NV, also after the 31st of May 2015.

What does not change?

The address does not change. All companies (Egemin NV, as well as the Agidens companies) stay at  Baarbeek 1, 2070 Zwijndrecht, Belgium.
