The SAHM story began more than 70 years ago. In 1945, the engineer Georg Sahm founded a small, independent tool manufacturing enterprise in Eschwege. Only four years later, he started the development of precision cross winders for the sewing thread industry. Since that time, entrepreneurial courage, foresight and attention to customers' needs have been decisive in the steady growth of SAHM.
