About ALDI Einkauf GmbH & Co oHG
Aldi (stylized as ALDI) is a leading global discount supermarket chain with over 10,000 stores in 18 countries, and an estimated turnover of more than €50 billion. Based in Germany, the chain was founded by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht in 1946 when they took over their mothers store in Essen which had been in operation since 1913; it is one of the worlds largest privately owned companies. The brothers built up a chain of stores until, by 1960, they owned 300 shops, and split the operation into two separate groups, that later became Aldi Nord, headquartered in Essen; and Aldi Süd, headquartered in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The two operate independently, each within specific areas. Aldis Scottish operations are run separately by independent franchisee Sam Mcconnell and Marco Nicholson, the rivalry is intense.
