In our new headquarters with its machine exhibition area our customers can see Starlinger and Sahm machinery in operation and make test runs with their respective input materials”, says Jimmy Cranford, President of American Starlinger-Sahm, Inc.
In the new location Starlinger and Sahm will offer the full range of their products and services. In the course of the summer machinery from Starlinger textile packaging, Starlinger recycling technology, Starlinger viscotec, and Sahm will be set up in the new machine exhibition area. “A recoSTAR universal recycling line, the viscoSHEET and deCON equipment, and Sahm winders will be available to our customers for demonstration runs and trials,” adds Cranford.
The Grand Opening of the new headquarters will be held as a 2-day event on 23-24 September 2015.
