Tradition & History

The SATTLER GROUP looks back on 145 years of history. The family-run company was founded in 1875, and is by now in its fifth generation.

Founded as a trading company in Graz, production at Sattler started several years later, first in Gössendorf and thereafter in Rudersdorf, both currently production sites in Austria.

During the 1960s the company converted to synthetic fibres and to new finishing and coating techniques. In addition, it started to rely on exportation and the conquering of new markets. From the 1990s onwards, growth also took place through new acquisitions. Sattler took over the brands and sales structures of well-known awning fabric producers such as Fröhlich+Wolff (DE), DFU (Norway), OSA (Switzerland), Mehler (DE) and tabella (Switzerland). In 2010 Sattler´s dedication to North America was strengthened by the acquisition of a distribution- and production facility in North Carolina, USA. Outdoor casual furniture and boat-covers are distributed through the Outdura brand name.

Today the SATTLER GROUP presents itself as an internationally active company with the goal of taking a leading position in all relevant fields of business.
