ISS acquires food service company in US

In North America, Denmark-based global facilities services provider ISS has acquired leading food services company Guckenheimer which is based in California.

Through this acquisition, the company says, it will significantly enhance its integrated facility services offering to key account customers in the North American market. Guckenheimer will also enhance ISS' competitiveness in winning new business from multinational customers with material activities in North America. It also already has a list of blue-chip, key account customers which offer potential for growth via increased geographic and service breadth.

Guckenheimer's primary focus is the on-site preparation of appealing and freshly prepared food for employees, typically located at the headquarter buildings of key accounts.

Jeff Gravenhorst, ISS Group CEO, said: "I am delighted that we have reached an agreement with the owners of Guckenheimer, including chairman and co-founder Jeanie Ritchie. Both companies have key account focus, serving the same industry segments and sharing culture and values."

The deal is worth €206.5 million.
