SSP Group has agreed to acquire part of the Stockheim group, a travel concessions business based in Germany.

The business operates 25 food and beverage outlets in airports and railway stations, including at Düsseldorf and Cologne, and had sales in 2016 of approximately €30m.

SSP said that the acquisition of these outlets would further strengthen its presence in travel locations across Germany, and is expected to complete in early 2018.

Oliver Dörschuck, chief executive of SSP Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France, said: “We are delighted to have acquired Stockheim. The business has some great brands operating in some key locations across Germany.”
