LENOIR – During Monday night’s Caldwell County Board of Commissioners meeting, the board voted unanimously to approve two local jobs incentive grants for a pair of growing companies in Hudson.

 

The two companies, Sattler Corporation and Adhezion Biomedical, were the recipients of the grants set to help them expand while adding jobs in the county.

 

Sattler Corporation is one of the oldest operating textile mills in the state. Sattler’s Hudson location specializes in high-performance outdoor fabrics for casual furniture collections, as well as boat, truck, and trailer awnings and other industrial products.

 

 

During the last year, Sattler Corp. has seen remarkable sales and production increases. The company plans to expand their business by adding new positions, including a third shift, in Hudson. Additionally, Sattler Corp. has already implemented two significant wage increases this year and has improved employee benefits packages to strengthen their ability to recruit and retain workers.

 

 

“Sattler has always been proud to be a big part of the Caldwell County community, and we look forward to expanding our workforce development partnership to include more creative and inclusive strategies for jobs, recruitment, and to strengthen alignment between people, skills, training, and reliable jobs for the community,” said Klaudia Sanders, Sattler’s chief financial officer.

 

 

The Sattler Corp. asked the board to grant them a Caldwell County local jobs incentive of $2,000 per new hire for up to 20 new jobs to be added in addition to their base employment of 76 employees.

 

 

Adhezion Biomedical, LLC is a medical device company that manufactures and distributes adhesive and infection prevention products. Last year, Adhezion, also in Hudson, developed a new intravenous catheter that has dramatically increased their sales. The company has asked to be considered for a local jobs incentive.

The company is also seeking a North Carolina building reuse grant to assist with their production line expansion, or to gain more manufacturing space.

 

 

“Due to the increase in demand for Adhezion Products over the past two years, we have elected to expand our production capabilities at our Hudson location,” said Pete Molinaro, chief executive officer and chairman of Adhezion. “We are also delighted to continue our partnership with the Caldwell County Economic Development Commission and our commitment to growing our business in the Caldwell County area.”

 

 

Adhezion formally requested consideration for a local jobs incentive of $2,000 per new hire for up to 20 jobs to be added in addition to their base employment of 29 over the next two years. The company is also pursuing a building reuse grant through a municipality, which will be used for expanding manufacturing space.
