With our procurement, purchasing and logistics activities we buy all the products and services we as Syntegon need to build machines and ensure a fast and reliable after sales service for our customers as well as to supply our internal organization. This includes both our Pharma and Food packaging business units. We handle contracts like corporate and price agreements. Within the order fulfillment process, we are responsible especially for RFQ, awarding, order placement, order confirmation, electronic catalogs, eProcurement, etc.
As Syntegon, our future depends significantly on the success of our customers and the commitment of our suppliers. For innovative suppliers who are interested in a long-term, performance-oriented cooperation, we therefore offer highly interesting opportunities. To strengthen the relationship to our suppliers, we introduce a new supplier portal (Jaggaer – formerly known as Pool4Tool). To improve efficiency we will further increase our electronic Catalogs in eProcurement and EDI connections. Grow with us in our unique, innovative and internationally competitive network.
Temporary reduction in VAT
Actual information to all suppliers that are registered regarding VAT in Germany and submit invoices according German tax:
As you may already know, the German Government decided to reduce the German VAT rates for a limited period from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020 as part of the so-called “Corona stimulus package”. The standard VAT rate is to be reduced from 19 percent to 16 percent and the reduced VAT rate from 7 percent to 5 percent respectively. We kindly ask you to consider the new planned regulations on the changed VAT rates accordingly when issuing invoices. Unfortunately, we cannot accept incoming invoices with incorrect VAT rates for supply of goods/services that are performed during the period of the temporary VAT rate reduction.
Many thanks in advance for your understanding!

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about the sale of Bosch Packaging Technology to CVC Capital Partners
Bosch Packaging Technology has been sold to CVC Capital Partners. What will be the impact for suppliers?
The sale of Syntegon (formerly Bosch Packaging Technology) has no impact on our business relationships to our suppliers. CVC wants Syntegon to continue to operate as an independent company in the food and pharma segments. We want to reassure you that the sale has no negative effect on our existing business relationships. CVC supports our strategy, and will secure our company's long-term viability.
Under Bosch ownership, Syntegon ordered according to the Bosch Price Agreement and the Bosch Corporate Agreement. Will Syntegon negotiate completely new contracts?
In principal, all existing supply contracts will remain valid. Contracts that have been directly signed by a Bosch Packaging Technology legal entity will remain valid for Syntegon. Contracts that have been closed by Bosch Corporate Purchasing have been duplicated for Syntegon in the past months. In cases, where a contract duplication is not possible or is not meaningful, we close new bilateral contracts.
