SAKAMI has earned a high reputation in the European animation and video game industry, and has become Germany's leading company focusing on the development of animation and game merchandise.

At the same time, the company has also worked extensively with many commercial clients, developing and producing related products for many authorized and independent brands of commercial clients and helping them expand their product catalogs.
