50 Years of Heritage, Craftsmanship & Service
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.
Since 2008 our flagship showroom has been located in the grounds of the beautiful Blenheim Palace, at the Sawmills. This is just a stone’s throw from where Jack sold his toboggans to the gathered crowds in the early forties.
The 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 architecture.
When you come to visit us here at our Blenheim Showroom you can view our range of bespoke hand crafted products on display. Also, enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit whilst we discuss your window and door requirements.
The team at Jack Brunsdon & Son warmly welcomes you to come and visit us and see how we proudly continue the journey from where it all started for Jack in the 1940’s.
