Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd are moving closer together

The two-way split between Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd may soon come to an end. First of all, a merger is planned of the purchasing departments and in several other areas as well, so certain goods can be procured in unison, according to the latest issue of Manager Magazin.

Manager Magazin cites the minutes from a meeting of senior Aldi managers, stating that the 'ranges and operations' should be synchronized.

After publishing this information, Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd announced in a joint statement that 'no merger is planned or intended, be it of the cooperations themselves or on any other level'. However, the two companies are pooling their resources, for example in the areas of purchasing and marketing. "By constantly optimizing common activities, we aim to further consolidate our market position.”
