Windsor Works Wonders With Windows
Local Manufacturer at the Forefront of Design & Technology - WINDSOR BLINDS - AWNINGS - SHUTTERS is a locally owned Newcastle based window furnishing manufacturer and supplier.
Established over 73 years ago by Mr B.J Young (Bill) after he returned from World War II in 1946. Mr Young had served as a member of the RAAF and felt he needed to give a patriotic tribute to Britain by naming his business after Windsor Castle and the Royal Family. And so, Windsor Wonderworld was born.
Windsor quickly became a name nationally accepted as the leader in the blind industry, a position it still retains – recognised as being in the ‘Top 10’ of its field in Australia.
In 1967, Windsor was the first in Newcastle to supply the now-famous 25mm Invisorama "Slimline" Venetian. Windsor patented the design of the Steel Curved Venetian Blind Slat and became the first blind manufacturer to use Terylene cables and tapes. This put Windsor at the forefront of design and technology in blind manufacturing.
With the installation of a state-of-the-art venetian blind making machine in 1982, Windsor went from strength to strength, forging a lucrative market in venetian blinds. This machine brought with it enormous customer benefits – particularly in terms of production output, economy and order processing, Windsor embarked on a new stage in history.
With the passing of Bill in 2013, his legacy was passed down to his second-youngest son Craig, who had been part of the business since he was a boy. Craig has also been responsible for the relocation of the company from its original premises in Carrington to the current location in Cardiff.
Nowadays, Craig is joined in the business by wife Zdenka and a team of professionals who are able to offer customers a wealth of experience and knowledge with some staff working in the business for over 20 years.
“The business is so entrenched in family that in addition to Craig's leadership, three out of his four brothers have been involved in the business at one stage or another before moving on to other careers,” said Zdenka.
“Our team has pride in their work, and we’re a family. We locally manufacture the popular Ziptrak Blinds and most of our other outdoor blinds and awnings that we have on offer. We cater for commercial and domestic requirements.”
Windsor’s success can largely be attributed to their dedication to customer service.
