Our sun protection business is a part of the SATTLER Group, a 5th generation, family-owned company, headquartered in Austria. Founded by August Sattler in 1875 as a trading company in Graz, production at Sattler started first in Gössendorf and thereafter in Rudersdorf, both current production sites.
Our headquarters are in Graz-Thondorf, Austria, and are a widely respected textile manufacturer, producing roughly 20,000,000 square meters of fabric annually. The SATTLER Group is the world’s leading manufacturer of textiles for outdoor use today.
During the 1960s the company converted to synthetic fibers 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.
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 farbics are distributed through the Outdura brand name.
