From its origins as a small blacksmithing shop in Fortitude Valley, RL Windsor & Son has become a dynamic group of engineering companies and a visionary leader in the Australian manufacturing industry.
The company of RL Windsor & Son Pty Ltd commenced operation as R.L. Windsor in 1926. Initially supplying knives and blacksmithing needs to industry in the post-war years, RLW has dedicated 85 years to engineering excellence, and produces sophisticated equipment required for the 21st century.
Over the years RL Windsor has undertaken many successful projects, including the development of machinery for the dried and fresh fruit and timber industries. This included tree harvesters, high pruners for forestry, sawing equipment, log handlers, stackers and feeders and a range of plywood presses and board loading systems; all of which provided a strong foundation for what was to come.
RL Windsor started manufacturing automated packaging under the Covic-Windsor brand in the 1950's, when they were one of the first Australian companies to offer locally designed and manufactured machines. Before this time the only packaging machines available to Australian producers were either imported or replicas of overseas products produced under licence.
From this beginning emerged the Fibre King range, the first of which were the GM1800 case sealers produced in 1957.
In 1984 RL Windsor decided to concentrate on packaging machinery due to the cyclical nature of the timber industry market. It set about developing new products, and in that year designed and built its first automatic palletising machine.
In 2001 the company moved into a new, 2000m2 purpose-built factory and office facility in the outer Brisbane suburb of Clontarf.
In 2003 it changed its trading name to Fibre King Pty Ltd to reflect the strength of the brand globally.
The last decade has seen the international growth of Fibre King and its award-winning range, and RL Windsor & Son's diversification into the water treatment industry.
