Sattler Corp officials traveled from Austria to finalize the company’s purchase of more than 2 acres of property from the Town of Hudson during a ceremony Thursday at the McCreary Family Fitness Center.

 

The agreement will allow for the continued preservation of the historic manufacturing site, which dates back to 1904, and provide the potential for company expansion in the future.

 

Representatives from the Town of Hudson – along with county, state, and business officials –gathered for a luncheon to mark the occasion and witness the formal signing of the documents to transfer 2.36 acres of Redwood Park to Sattler Corp.

 

Located at the corner of Main Street and Mount Herman Road in Hudson, the Sattler manufacturing facility serves as the North American headquarters for the Gössendorf, Austria-based company.

 

Because grant money had been used in the development of Redwood Park, state and federal permission was required in order for the transaction to proceed. To offset the purchased land, the Hudson Optimist Club donated an 8-acre parcel to the town.

 

Hudson Mayor Janet Winkler thanked officials for coming together to make the land sale possible. She noted the historic nature of the textile manufacturing site that began operation before Hudson was incorporated.

 

Sattler Chairman of the Supervisory Board Alexander Tessmar-Pfohl and Chief Operating Officer Andreas Freiler participated in the ceremony. Freiler said the land will permit the maker of outdoor fabrics to pursue its future expansion plans.

 

In 2011, Sattler purchased the former Shuford Mills facility and the business currently employs approximately 85 people. Company officials have previously indicated that employment could grow by 30 percent over the next three to five years, depending on the type of equipment purchased and growth in market segments.
