Coffee has a long-established tradition in Vienna and so does the Helmut Sachers company. It was founded in 1929 by Karl SACHERS. It was located in the Russian zone of Vienna. After many ups and downs, it was totally demolished during World War II. Helmut Sachers was inactive for many years.
Karl SACHERS, the father of today's owner, started it again in the fifties. The brand-name STAMBULIA was established in 1956. On July 1, 1970 Helmut SACHERS took over this very small company. Within a few years, STAMBULIA was pushed to a well-known brand name for cafes and restaurants in Austria. In the early eighties, the company started under the family-name SACHERS in the retail-business and, with STAMBULIA in the catering-business. Within a decade it transformed into a very well-known business all over Austria.
On January 1, 1972, the company bought its first coffee-company: Arian. As of now, they own various small coffee-companies such as Campos, Burkert, Sombrero, Peru, Morenita, Angola, Stemhoff, Werner and Veith.
Helmut Sachers handles its own distribution as well as working with wholesalers, agents, and other distributors. About 15 years ago, the company started a machine branch. To serve their customers better, the company presently deals in grinders, espresso-machines, mixers, dishwashers, etc. Helmut Sachers represents well known brands such as “Rossi”, “Brasilia”, “Promac” and “Black & White”.
Also in the eighties the company began exporting ORIGINAL HELMUT SACHERS COFFEE first to Germany, then on to Canada, followed by the US, and other countries.To serve the German customers better, Helmut Sachers established a German subsidiary in Bavaria.
Today, Helmut Sachers is exporting to approximataly 30 countries worldwide and is one of the most successful and highly renowned exporters of roasted coffee.
Thanks to the full aroma and fine flavor of Helmut Sachers freshly roasted blends, the company has become synonymous with the art of making good coffee. The company continues to maintain this tradition to keep its deeply established reputation.
