Our Mission - to deliver beyond your expectations

What does that mean? It means finding the best solution for your needs. It means we want to tick all the boxes, and then some.  It means we’ll be striving to deliver the goods for you. It means we have values we adhere to, such as buying and supplying Australian made wherever we can. And of course it means quality in everything – the products, the service and the installation.

Our Founder - Bert Tilley​

Cathy and Bert Tilley began making blinds in a small workshop at their home in Melbourne in 1986, and production has been continuous since then. Ashwood Blinds was formed in 1987. The business has expanded beyond the original bamboo blinds to offer a full range of blinds, shutters and security products for windows and doors. Over thirty years later, the business is led by their son Marcus, while Cathy is still active in the business on a daily basis.

Marcus Tilley - Melbourne Operation

If you need someone who knows blinds inside-out, you need Marcus.

He’s Ashwood’s General Manager in Melbourne, and he’s been making quality blinds – yes making them – for 12 years. Which means Marcus understands, not only the process and the final product but also the materials used in making blinds, and where and how to use them.

A great listener with a practical problem-solving mind, Marcus is a goldmine for customers who want the very best window and door covering solutions, whatever the parameters.
