"Luxaflex® was started more than 60 years ago, in 1946 when Joe Hunter and Henry Sonnenberg established a new business; the ‘Hunter Douglas Machinery Corporation’, to develop a new casting and production process for lightweight aluminum. Within just a few years their collaboration led to the invention of a product that would forever change the market for window coverings: aluminum Venetian Blinds.
The blinds were introduced into Europe in 1951 under the name Luxaflex®, and quickly captured the hearts of many of Europeans due to their exceptional functionality and design. Luxaflex® continued its history of development and innovation into the 21st Century, and became the recognised European market leader. Consistently adding new product lines, and winning many awards for ground breaking inventions such as Duette® Shades, Silhouette® Shades and Facette® Shades.
