Neu-Isenburg – LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG has sold its wholly-owned subsidiary LPS Event Catering GmbH (Lufthansa Party Service / LPS) to Ullrich Eckert, Managing Director of the company. With this sale, LSG further emphasizes its strategic focus on its core business, airline catering.

LPS offers party and event catering services to customers on a national and international scale. Every year, LPS organizes and hosts more than 1,500 events for about 600,000 guests. The company has been successful for nearly 40 years.

Within the scope of the sale, Eckert has gained the right to use the brand names “Lufthansa Party Service” and “LSG Event” through the end of 2008. A confidentiality agreement has been signed to not discuss any price issues or other modalities of the contract.
