50 Years of Heritage, Craftsmanship & Service
Jack Brunsdon was a craftsman, he opened his first workshop back in the 1940s in Oxford, producing everything from staircases to furniture and cabinets.
Times were hard and the best of British entrepreneurship was required to survive. The snowy winter of 1941 saw Jack diversify into toboggan manufacture. Then the hot summer of 1947 found the firm turning out deckchairs based on a concept he had spotted in France.
In the 1950s, when Morris Motors scaled up production of the Morris Traveller, Jack had a spell making the iconic ash frames for the rear timber bodywork of this famous wood-framed estate. And in 1959, he was even commissioned to build the famous ‘Swingometer’ which featured on the BBC’s coverage of that year’s general election.
Over time the production of high-quality doors became Jack’s signature craft. These were installed in universities, banks, church buildings, public houses and prestige homes throughout the region.
In 1964, as advances were being made in glass technologies, Jack sensed an opportunity and formally incorporated window production into the business. Now for more than fifty years the business has carried on the tradition of making and installing the finest windows and doors.
Recently, Jack Brunsdon & Son was acquired by renowned Swedish company, Inwido, Europe’s leading supplier of wooden windows and doors. We remain a British brand focused on carrying on with Jack’s tradition of Heritage, Craftsmanship and Service with the addition of Scandinavian technology.
Our flagship showroom is in the grounds of the beautiful Blenheim Palace, at Blenheim Palace Sawmills. This is just a stone’s throw from where Jack sold his toboggans to the gathered crowds in the early forties.
This showroom is a wonderful place to visit as it used to be the original store building for the mill next door. It has beautiful high ceilings showcasing original beams and is the perfect home for our window and door displays.
When you visit our showroom, you can view our wide range of bespoke and hand-crafted products. Enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit with us whilst we discuss your design ideas for your home.
