Minkels Industrial Electronics now Cortexon.

During an informal lunch meeting op 11th april last at the High-Tech Campus in Eindhoven Mr. Gery Morssinkhof, CEO of the Aegide-group, gave an explanation of the new business unit structure and the new strategy of Aegide. Afterwards the new name of Minkels Industrial Electronics – Cortexon – was revealed to a select number of invited relations.


Jeroen Hol, Business Unit Manager of Cortexon explains why this name was chosen: “ for many years the name Minkels was associated with cabinets but this is only a small part of our activities: Cortexon develops and produces the best solution to customers needs. Besides innovative, customer specific electronic enclosures Cortexon offers added value, like assembly of electronic components, logistic services and lifecycle control of integrated products”.

The name Cortexon relates to the cerebral cortex, a structure within the vertebrate brain. The human cerebral cortex plays a central role in many complex brain functions including memory, attention, perceptual awareness, "thinking", language and consciousness. This new name perfectly reflects the innovative working method of Cortexon.

Cortexon is a member of the Aegide-group. As a European player, the Aegide group develops, manufactures and markets housings for the IT, telecom and high-tech OEM industry. The activities of Aegide range from advice on and realisation of remote controlled data centres to complex micro-housings including various services. With 150 dedicated and experienced professionals Aegide counts global players such as ABN AMRO, ASML, NXP, Grass Valley, Philips, UBS, France Telecom and Atos Origin to its regular customers.

Cortexon was officially introduced at the Hannover Messe 2007 were Cortexon won the "Goldene Tulpe" award, the award for the best Dutch stand in the Nevat collective. By the end of 2007 the legal form of Cortexon will change into an autonomous company within the Aegide-group.
