Seasons Greetings from the entire Sasma team. In a year filled with challenge, we are grateful for your continued support. Here’s to a cheerful holiday and fresh 2021.
Looking back on 2020, we focused our resources and prioritized the surge in sanitizer products. Since the onset of Covid-19 Sasma has been a major supplier for medical and pharmaceutical industries worldwide, in addition to maintaining our supply of industrial and spirits alcohols. Looking forward, to a new year, we are excited to continue to introduce new products for our industry partners as we continue to meet the demands of industry needs.
In this newsletter issue, we are highlighting the dedicated Sasma team. From our highly experienced Sales and Logistics teams to our new Quality Manager, each division is focused on providing you the highest quality in customer service and our products.

Q & A with Sasma Quality Manager
Dieuwertje Troost joined the Sasma team earlier this year as the new Quality Manager and we wanted to ask her about her experience and plans for continued quality assurance at Sasma.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS USED AT SASMA
TO MANAGE THE QUALITY OF OUR PRODUCTS?
We have two quality systems, the overall quality system ISO 9001 and we also have a quality system for food management which is the ISO 22000. These are the systems that we work with to manage the quality of our products.
