Gate Gourmet has reached an agreement to acquire the operating assets and customer contracts of the SCK Sky Catering Kitchen Group of companies.
SCK Sky Catering Kitchen was founded almost three decades ago in Stuttgart, Germany by the Klenk family and was built up to provide domestic and international catering services to airlines from four locations in Berlin Tegel, Berlin Schönefeld, Stuttgart and Nuremberg.
Under the terms of the deal SCK Services GmbH will be integrated into Gate Gourmet Germany as a separate legal entity.
The existing workforce will remain with SCK Services and continue to serve customers at all four German airports.
Gategroup president Americas, Europe and Middle East, Herman Anbeek, said: “This is a strategically important acquisition that will strengthen gategroup’s operations in Germany.
“SCK’s network largely complements gategroup’s existing locations and will enable us to continue to operate an efficient, extended network for our key customers, especially Germany based charters and network airlines. We welcome the SCK staff joining our group.”
The purchase is subject to anti-trust clearance and the purchase price is undisclosed.
