Fountain Inn, SC - American Starlinger-Sahm celebrated the official opening of the new US headquarters in Fountain Inn, South Carolina with a two-day Open House on September 23 and 24, 2015. The inauguration ceremony of the new 23,000 sq.ft. facility was held on the evening of September 23 and attended by the mayor of Fountain Inn.

Angelika Huemer, Managing Partner of the parent company Starlinger & Co. GmbH., emphasized the importance of the North American market for the Austrian-based supplier of woven packaging equipment, plastics recycling and refining equipment. “In the past years we witnessed a continuous rise in the demand of our products on the North American market”, she said. “Our subsidiary Sahm already has a long established presence as a supplier to the American textile sector, and with the growing plastics recycling industry, Starlinger recycling lines are experiencing strong demand.” She also sees great potential in the woven plastic packaging sector, especially with the newly developed technology for PET tape fabric from Starlinger. “For Starlinger, the opening of our new headquarters in Fountain Inn is one further step into a promising future on the American market”, she concludes.

 

The program for the Open House included presentations of the newest technological developments of all divisions of Starlinger. In the new showroom visitors could see the latest Sahm winder models, a recoSTAR universal recycling line, and a viscoSTAR SSP plant in combination with a viscoSHEET rPET sheet line in operation. This configuration is a leading edge solution for prime suppliers in the PET packaging industry.
