The SATTLER Group can look back at 140 years history. Since being founded in 1875, the company is run by the family, now in its fifth generation.
Founded as a trading company in Graz, the production was taken over after a few years. First in Gössendorf and then in Rudersdorf, both still the production sites in Austria.
Company development:
In the 1960s, the switch to synthetic fibers and new furnishing and coating processes was made. This entailed involvement in exports and conquering new markets.
From the 1990s, the growth was strengthened by acquisitions. Finally in 2010 through the acquisition of a sales and production facility in North Carolina.
Today the SATTLER Group presents itself as a global company with the objective of becoming a leader in current business areas.
