At the beginning of the seventies the antique dealer Mr. Erich Wassmann bought an old beersiphon. For many decades such beer siphons used to be found in most households as was the also case in the Wassmann household. As a boy he very often had to take such a siphon to get his father's evening drink from the nearby pub.
The acquired beer siphon - probably dating from the year 1910 - 1920 - brought back old memories to him. As a result of his love for tradition Erich Wassmann came up with the idea to re-introduce the beersiphon to the brewing industry.
The re-introduction of the beersiphon to the German and international market took place in 1975 with the help of his family.
From these humble beginnings the company Industrieglas Wassmann GmbH & Co. KG, which is now being run by the third generation, has evolved to become a global player.
