Sattler Acquires Outdura From Shuford Mills

Sattler AG, Austria, has acquired the Outdura® brand of solution-dyed acrylic canvas fabrics for outdoor furniture, marine and awning applications from Shuford Mills LLC, Hickory, N.C., for an undisclosed price. The deal includes Shuford Mills' manufacturing operation and distribution center in Hudson, N.C. Outdura is Shuford Mills' sole product line. Sattler plans to invest $4.56 million in the operation, now known as Outdura Corp., and will retain Shuford Mills' current 60 employees while expanding the operation's facility and manufacturing systems, and adding 12 or more positions over the next three years.

Prior to the Outdura acquisition, Sattler employed approximately 540 people globally and annually produced more than 20 million square meters of fabric including membrane solutions for architectural and industrial applications; sun-protective fabrics for tents and awnings, boat covers, and other applications; and technical textiles for truck tarpaulins, advertising, hall and booth, and other applications. The company's headquarters and two other manufacturing operations are located in Austria; and its Ceno Tec textile architecture subsidiary is located in Germany.
