Our Story


From the warm embrace of the Hickmott family home you can see the luminescent glow from the backyard shed. Home is where the heart is – and backyards are where dreams become reality.

As daylight fades to dusk, and dusk to evening, the light continues to shine. Inside, hours and hours of creating, adjusting and tinkering are bringing to life an engineer’s long-held vision.

Windsor is a company founded on innovation. The Kiwi can-do spirit is fundamental to the core business; from the very beginning, Windsor sought to go beyond what had already been mastered.

& Now

From humble beginnings in the backyard shed in 1984 to now, the Windsor story is one of family, craftsmanship and determination.

The backyard shed became an industrial premises, lacquering door knobs in the living room became a commercial spray booth and hand finishing handles in 20L buckets became a formal bronzing line.

What started as a vision has today become a significant player in the Australasian market specialising in bespoke hardware products for residential homes.
