By Rachel Debling

Gate Gourmet announced today that it has agreed to acquire the operating assets and customer contracts of SCK Sky Catering Kitchen Group for an undisclosed purchase price.

Under the agreement, which is subject to anti-trust clearance, SCK Services will be integrated into Gate Gourmet Germany as a separate legal entity. Employees of SCK Services will remain with the company and it will continue to serve its customers at the aforementioned German locations.

gategroup's President Americas, Europe and Middle East, Herman Anbeek, noted in a statement: "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."

According to a press release from gategroup, 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.
