Stutt­gart — A team led by Stut­t­­gart-based part­ner Dr. Hermann Ali Hinde­rer provi­ded legal advice to Stor­sko­gen Deutsch­land GmbH on the acqui­si­tion of A & K — Die frische Küche GmbH, a leading manu­fac­tu­rer of ultra-fresh ready meals, which also opera­tes a deli­very service (meals-on-wheels) through its subsi­diary Casino Services. The company will be inte­gra­ted into Storskogen’s Products busi­ness area in the Indus­try segment.

Follo­wing the acqui­si­tion of SF Tooling Group at the end of 2021, this is alre­ady the second tran­sac­tion within a short period of time in which Heuking has advi­sed Storskogen.

Stor­sko­gen acqui­res and opera­tes well-mana­­ged and profi­ta­ble medium-sized compa­nies in the busi­ness areas of indus­try, trade and services in Nort­hern Europe, the DACH region and the UK. As of Septem­ber 30, 2021, Stor­sko­gen consis­ted of 94 busi­ness units with a total of around 7,000 employees and annual sales of appro­xi­m­ately 1.8 billion euros.

A & K — Die frische Küche GmbH, head­quar­te­red in Reck­ling­hau­sen and with loca­ti­ons in Wupper­tal and Alsdorf, employs around 150 people and gene­ra­ted sales of 16 million euros in 2021. Every day, around 20,000 meals are cooked in the company’s own Cook & Chill kitchen with ten produc­tion lines. Meals are deli­vered to various insti­tu­ti­ons and house­holds around the sites via the subsi­diary Casino Service, a meals-on-wheels company.
