CONTINUED GROWTH FOR CLASSIC BLINDS & SHUTTERS
Established in 2004 by sister, brother/wife family combination Bev, Stephen and Ginny, Classic Blinds and Shutters now employs over 25 staff and is rapidly outgrowing their factory at Macquarie Hills. They also have a retail showroom on Parry Street, Newcastle West.
The business manufactures plantation shutters, venetian blinds and roller blinds. They also supply and install all types of internal and external window coverings and awnings to the Hunter. The majority Australian made. Every job is custom made.
Manufacturing locally provides them with a competitive advantage, offering shorter lead times, better quality and fast turn round on any problems. They are able to make product design adjustments to suit our local market and conditions Classic Blinds & Shutters recently completed a 2 year comparison study across a wide range of window coverings for the effect of heat and light. From this data they developed a rating system for heat efficiency (see www.classicblinds.com.au/enviro_study/.aspx)
The rating systems is one element they provide to help consumers reach the right window covering selection for their home or office. They also provide styling and function advice.
