Breezway began manufacturing louvre windows (i.e. old style metal jalousie louvres) around 1935 in Australia and by the mid-1960’s our louvres were being exported to over 65 countries. Over the years the company has manufactured a number of other products including munitions (during the Second World War) and fluorescent lights, but aluminium louvre windows have always been a key part of the business.
Breezway Malaysia was established in 2003. Machinery and technology on louvre manufacturing were transferred from its corporate headquarters in Brisbane, Australia to the factory in Klang. Within a year, Breezway Malaysia was starting to produce and sell assembled Altair Louvre Galleries for the Malaysian market. Over the years, the Breezway Malaysia business has progressed beyond just manufacturing components and parts to the production and sales of more products such as the Easyscreen and Slimline Window Systems.
With the rapid expansion of sales around the region and the introduction of new products, Breezway Malaysia moved to a larger manufacturing facility in August 2010. The new factory boasts additional press machines and plastic injection machines. At the same time, its business has expanded from Malaysia to other South East Asia countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. Breezway Malaysia also started exporting to other countries in the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Sri Lanka and even Turkey. Besides Australian, New Zealand standards, Breezway Malaysia products are also certified under the Malaysia SIRIM certification.
