General information

Please find enclosed the general information for customers and suppliers.

Order and Shipping related issues

 

Packaging / Labels / Documents
During a transition phase, goods may still carry the LANXESS logo or the LANXESS brand name, while invoices and accompanying documents will already reflect the new ARLANXEO name. This will not cause any problems from a legal point of view.

Open Sales Orders
All open orders are unaffected from the transition from LANXESS to ARLANXEO, except for open orders placed with Elemica,  LXS Deutschland GmbH and LXS Corp. Open orders placed with these two legal entities will be migrated automatically to the succeeding ARLANXEO entities. SAP order confirmations will not be reissued. Order numbers and material numbers will stay unchanged.
Customer using the Elemica platform, please contact your customer service representative for further details.

Bank accounts

 

All your payments as of April 1st need to be made to the applicable ARLANXEO bank accounts.

Migration of purchase orders

 

We will issue new purchase orders for open purchase orders for ARLANXEO Deutschland GmbH and ARLANXEO USA LLC on April 1st. The effected suppliers will receive a separate information stating details of these orders on this date. Starting April 1st, 2016, invoices for purchase orders created by ARLANXEO Deutschland GmbH and ARLANXEO USA LLC will be booked by the Accounts Payable department of ARLANXEO.

Online Portals

 

LanxessOne
For the time being ARLANXEO will continue to use LANXESSOne so there will be no changes to your well-known ordering process via this platform. Apart from the additional ARLANXEO logo next to the LANXESS logo, your system access (IDs, entry data, processes, order masks) as well as the procedures will remain unchanged.


Elemica
In general there will be no changes to the order processes you are familiar with. All existing DUNS numbers will remain unchanged, however, the two newly created legal entities ARLANXEO Deutschland GmbH (312505278), ARLANXEO USA LLC (080132206) as well as ARLANXEO Canada Inc. (253628739) will get their new, individual DUNS numbers as stated. Mind that the renaming of all existing legal entities to contain the new company name ARLANXEO may trigger minor system adjustments on customer side.

There will be no changes to the Email-address for customers using the Elemica QuickLink.

For open orders in Elemica, please contact your customer service representative for further details.

 

Procurement Portal

The Procurement Portal for vendors will remain unchanged and can be reached under: https://procurement.lanxess.com

 

 

System downtimes

 

There will be a cutover period for SAP systems from April 1 to April 4, 2016. During these days the SAP and the transport management system Inet will not be available. From Friday, April 1st until Tuesday morning, April 5th no loading to customers of any material will happen. Vendors can still deliver materials to the plants in that period but the invoices regarding these deliveries will be processed as of April 5 again.


Email addresses

 

As of April 1, all ARLANXEO employees will communicate through their new email addresses. The existing LANXESS emails will be redirected accordingly.
