"Where did the SAHM logo
come from?"

We're excited to announce the first winner of our 40th anniversary give-away! Mike Bullard from Continental snatched the first 'party on us' and opted for chicken sandwiches for all.

The SAHM team, represented by Jimmy Cranford, Ben Lemmons and Mark Easley, served breakfast, lunch and dinner to cover all shifts of the day. 125 hungry team members gathered and connected over some delicious food. What could be better than that?!

We're grateful for the warm welcome we received at Continental, one of our wonderful customers. Thank you!

"Where does the name 'American Starlinger-Sahm' come from?

Are you next? It's still time to enter.

Angelika Huemer, Owner

Mark Easley, Sales Manager

"As the new guy on the block, it is a great pleasure to work at American Starlinger Sahm. I look forward to many successful years."

Sebastian Weiss, Technical Manager

"After working at the SAHM headquarter in Germany, I moved to the US fours years ago and feel privileged to support our customers in all technical issues alongside an incredible, hard-working team."

"If I would be able to say one thing to the SAHM customers, it would be ‘thank you for allowing me and helping me to be successful in the US.' Thank you for your partnership for the years when I was a part of the Sahm organization in the US.  And congratulations to the Sahm organization for the 40 years of service in the US."

"It is the combination of skilled, dedicated people, high-quality machines, and the constant support from Sahm Germany and our owners, the Starlinger organization, that allow American Starlinger Sahm to support our customers with solutions that set them up for success. Yesterday, today and in the future."
