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 Steel Curved Venetian Blind Slat design and became the first blind manufacturer to use Terylene cables and tapes. This put Windsor at the forefront of design, innovation 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 and so Windsor embarked on a new stage in history.

With Bill's passing 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 relocating 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 can offer customers a wealth of experience and knowledge. Some staff have been working in the company 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 Craig and Zdenka’s dedication to customer service. With an offering that combines high-quality products, value for money and above all personal service, they continue to maintain 100% satisfaction for their customers.

Windsor uses only the best standard of componentry and materials, specifically designed for the Australian Environment. This ensures a long-lasting, quality product that is backed by the Windsor Warranty. Always recognising the customer's best interest, Windsor has kept and will continue to stay up-to-date with all the latest developments, ideas, technologies, trends, and services standards that have become synonymous with the Windsor name.
