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-Sahm will offer a full range of their products and services.
