After almost 150 years, there is a lot to tell. But we don't want to overload you with boring facts and dates. That is why we list only the most important ones below.
The company is established
Joiner Jules Windels starts his wooden shutter business.
The name ‘Winsol’
The Windels and Vangheluwe families work together under the new name ‘Winsol’ and they now also make sunblinds.
PVC roller shutters
Winsol pioneers PVC roller shutters and starts the production of awnings.
PVC joinery work
Winsol starts producing PVC windows and doors. 40 years later, we are still a frontrunner with the profile systems that we developed ourselves.
A commercial team starts working with our southern neighbours. First just in northern France and later also in the south.
Sectional garage doors are added to the Winsol range.
Aluminium & balustrades
Aluminium windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular and are now also part of the Winsol range. Balustrade production for project construction is launched.
Winsol is taken over by new CEO Xavier Costenoble and Sufina, the holding company of the Moortgat family.
The revolutionary Pergola SO! wins an important design award. This opens many doors and Winsol goes international. In the meantime, we are now also active in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada and the UAE, amongst others.
Under the motto ‘a home to enjoy’, Winsol enters a future in which comfort, safety, sustainability and innovation are the main focus.
