Satellite Industries has announced it is expanding deodorizer production in Cedar Park, Texas, in a brand-new facility.

The new facility continues Satellite's company vision for improving sanitation worldwide. Todd Hilde, son of founder Al Hilde and the current owner of Satellite, sees the increased use of portable restrooms around the world as an encouraging step towards improved global health. Hilde's vision for Satellite is to expand its presence around the world, and Satellite has met the growing demand for its products through acquisitions, investing in new facilities and adding more dedicated employees. That continues today as Satellite Industries expands its deodorizer, cleaning and chemical manufacturing, continuing to create essential products for the sanitation industry and new jobs in the community.

In 2009, Satellite acquired a long-term supplier and manufacturer of deodorizers and cleaners in Cedar Park. After that, Satellite created its first deodorizer brand, Safe-T-Fresh. Since the founding of Safe-T-Fresh, Satellite Industries has grown its deodorizer production and market share considerably, and has created dozens of jobs in manufacturing for the local community in Cedar Park. Over the past 11 years under the leadership of Doug Loebertmann, vice president of the deodorizer division, Satellite Industries developed deodorizer technologies that have made Safe-T-Fresh one of the only deodorizer manufacturers to offer eco-friendly products.

Years of product development and growth have led to the need for expansion in Satellite's deodorizer division. Satellite Industries broke ground on its new property in Cedar Park Nov. 23, and plans to have double the production space of its current facility.

"We’ve experienced impressive growth over the last decade, but our growth was limited by our space," Loebertmann says. "The new facility will give us the room to grow our business even more while allowing us to operate more safely and efficiently. We're excited to create new jobs in our community, and more and better products for our customers."

Additionally, the extra space will allow its sister company, Satellite Shelters, to expand its Texas operations. Satellite expects a record future in deodorizer production and will be able to create a better working environment for its current and future employees.

"The growth in our deodorizer division has been tremendous over the last 10 years and we have managed to keep up with market demand within the original footprint of our manufacturing facility," says Satellite President John Babcock. "It is now time to take it to the next level. Our new manufacturing plant will not only provide a solid runway for future growth in the division, but will provide new jobs in our community, new products for our customers, and growth opportunities for our employees."

Owner and CEO of Satellite Industries, Todd Hilde, also lauded the expansion. "God bless America. We are so fortunate to live in a country and state that allows a unique business like ours to flourish. I am so proud of our team, particularly Doug Loebertmann and John Babcock, for making this opportunity come to life."

Satellite Industries is a sanitation equipment manufacturer, in business since 1958. It is a family owned company specializing in the design and manufacturing of portable restrooms, hand-wash stations, vacuum trucks, restroom trailers and deodorizers. Satellite now provides products to portable restroom operators in over 120 countries around the world.
