Climate-neutral glasses from SAHM

Collaboration with ClimatePartner

Höhr-Grenzhausen, July 2021: From now on, customers of the medium-sized company SAHM, one of the leading international suppliers of glasses for the beverage industry, can purchase climate-neutral glasses. For this, the company is teaming up with ClimatePartner from Munich. ClimatePartner works with numerous national and international companies; the label can be seen on many products.

By offering climate-neutral products (glasses), customers’ attention can be drawn towards climate protection.
By buying the products, they are offered the opportunity to make a
conscious decision to protect the environment.
Together with ClimatePartner, Sahm GmbH has drawn up a CO2 balance sheet for the entire company called the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF). This takes into account emission sources such as energy and heating, but also business travel, production materials, logistics and all emissions caused by the company. We strive to reduce the CCF through continuous improvements to the company’s processes.

‘SAHM has been pursuing a consistent strategy in terms of sustainability and resource conservation for more than ten years as part of its ISO 14001 certification,’ says Michael SAHM, the company’s managing director.
‘Therefore, the collaboration with ClimatePartner is a logical step on our path. We take climate protection very seriously and are pleased to start an important working relationship with ClimatePartner.’

Customers who would like to purchase climate-neutral glasses can choose from a wide range of shapes and varieties in the SAHM range. Beer mugs, goblets, glasses for spirits and also glasses for non-alcoholic drinks are available. The additional expenditure for climate-neutral glasses is 1–2% of the production costs. The unavoidable emissions are compensated for by climate protection projects that are verified according to internationally recognised standards.

New service: Digital relief printing from SAHM

We print your exclusive glass!

Höhr-Grenzhausen, July 2021: SAHM, a leading international supplier of glasses for the beverage industry, has introduced a new digital printing process that produces excellent reliefs. What used to be possible only on glasses that were firmly blown or pressed into the glass mould is now a reality on any glass thanks to a revolutionary new printing technique. Even a single exclusive glass can be produced in this way. And without any moulding costs at all.

‘There are almost endless customisation options for customers who value a very special brand presence,’ says Michael Sahm, Managing Director of the renowned medium-sized company. ‘No matter what the occasion, for example company anniversaries, special events or in hospitality – every relief is artfully produced digitally by ink jet.’

The glasses produced by digital relief printing offer a unique feel to the hand and mouth and stand out clearly from conventional glasses. Digital relief printing delivers fast and extremely precise results, and the glasses are also suitable for use in restaurants and dishwashers.

Michael Sahm: ‘Even coloured products are possible; we are proud to be able to offer our customers this new technology. It puts us far ahead of the competition by offering the greatest possible individuality. Anything is possible, whether small or very small-scale series production or even entirely individualised, one-off glasses.’

Craftsman wins GOOD DESIGN® Award, Chicago

Second Award for SAHM Craft Beer Tumbler

Elegant and yet simple and functional: The Craftsman tumbler from SAHM, developed for the urban craft beer scene, scored in Chicago with its innovative design and has won the GOOD DESIGN® Award. This is already the second distinction following the iF Design Award for the glass for the successful provider of glasses for the beverage industry.

With the Craftsman, SAHM has developed an expressive craft beer tumbler that provides the perfect pairing of sensory properties and functionality. The GOOD DESIGN® Award jury in Chicago was equally convinced and awarded the glass the coveted prize. “We are extremely pleased that the Craftsman has already been recognised a second time within such a short period of time,” reports Paul Goller, Managing Director Marketing & Sales at SAHM GmbH + Co. KG. SAHM designer Annette Neunzig developed the tumbler which with its curved shape accentuates the different aromas of beers in different ways and above all brings out the fruity and floral aroma of every craft beer. By directing the flow of beer in a concentrated stream, the glass guarantees drinking pleasure by simultaneously reaching all relevant taste receptors on the tongue. This produces a full and at the same time fresh taste experience. Its functionality makes the tumbler ideal for the urban bar scene. Handling and cleaning are especially easy. The Craftsman is machine made and comes in a 54 cl size.

Brewhouse Tumbler receives German Design Award 2016

Special Mention award


Eye-catching, functional and sturdy - these features of the Brewhouse Tumbler from SAHM convinced this year's jury for the German Design Awards 2016. With the Special Mention award, the committee honors products whose design is especially innovative. This is the third award for the glass intending for the tasting of craft beers, joining the ranks of the Red Dot Design award and the Chicago Good Design award.

SAHM, as a successful provider of glasses for the beverage industry worldwide, selected the Brewhouse Tumbler, a glass from the company's own craft-beer range, as their entry for the German Design Award. And, they have been crowned with success. Effective immediately, the product from SAHM can boast the distinction of having earned Special Mention. The Brewhouse Tumbler was designed by SAHM designer Sylvia Weber and is captivating with its clear lines and timeless design. “The round body shape of the upper portion of the glass allows specialty beers to develop their aromas. The narrowing towards the base of the glass allows carbonation to be released optimally and supports the head ideally, explains Michael Sahm, Managing Director at SAHM. The sturdy glass and solid base also ensure the glass' durability. Because of its material characteristics, the stackable glass is ideal for the urban bar scene. It is also available in all European sizes from 0.2 to 0.5 liters.

World champion sommelier Markus Del Monego and beer sommelier champion Oliver Wesseloh will be on hand to provide insight into the world of TasteDesign®.

Craft beer seems to be going down well - and it does at SAHM's trade fair stand, too. One highlight is the Brewhouse tumbler, the recipient of two design awards. The stackable glass has a clear design and is unique with its perfect blending of functionality and sensory qualities. The award-winning tumblers Craftsman and Dayton from SAHM's own craft beer range are among the showcased at the fair.

SAHM is also featuring innovative ideas from their exclusive glass solutions. “Glasses are important brand ambassadors and are optimally suited as sales promotions.

Ideas for promotional business in 2017 are the primary focus.

The topic of TasteDesign® also plays an important role. Visitors to the stand can see and taste for themselves the impact the shape of a glass has on the taste of the beer.
