LSG Sky Chefs restructures catering

LSG Sky Chefs will restructure its airline catering activities in Germany by mid-2011. LSG Sky Chefs Deutschland GmbH will be split into a management company and 12 individual limited liability operating companies (GmbH). “This re-alignment in the German market

will strengthen the entrepreneurial scope of the individual locations, and offer an improved perspective for all parties involved,” commented Walter Gehl, ceo of LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG. By establishing independent companies it is intended that the flexibility and speed of these individual locations to adjust to their specific market conditions will increase, thus generating improved competitiveness and growth. LSG Sky Chefs Deutschland’s membership in

the employers’ association will be transferred to the new companies, ensuring that collective agreements and labour contracts remain unchanged.
