Where Are Southern Cross Windmills Manufactured?

Australian Owned, Australian Made, Australian Windmills

Straight Outta Withcott

All Southern Cross Windmills are currently manufactured out of our state of the art manufacturing facility in Withcott, and even our friends over at Southern Cross Water Tanks are just down the highway in Loganholme.

 
We think it’s important as an iconic Australian company that we keep all of our manufacturing and administration Australian based, and we know how important it is to Australians to purchase from an Australian owned company.

A storied history of Australian manufacturing

Not only are Southern Cross Windmills Australian made (and Australian owned), Southern Cross has a long history of Australian manufacturing that dates all the way back to 1871.

In 1870, George Washington Griffiths, left Manchester with his wife, children and brother in law, setting sail for Australian shores, where he purchased a small ironbrandon aiyuk jersey yeezy sneakers brandon aiyuk youth jersey Purchase college team jerseys at a discounted price and of high quality bose quietcomfort 35 usa price hängemattengestell preisvergleich zara long jumpsuit in green isolateur cloture electrique ruban mallas para hombre nike koaxialní kabel hornbach corsair ddr3 1600 nike technical cross body bag cheap yeezys ipad 2019 hülle mit tastatur und stifthalter ciorapi compresivi pana la coapsa mongery in Toowoomba, and started the company that would one day become Southern Cross.

By 1873, he had been joined by his brother John Alfred Griffiths – a recent engineering graduate from Manchester University. The two started trading under the name Griffiths Bros & Co. and moved to a larger site, and built a foundry that would become the iconic Toowoomba Foundry.

In 1876, the first windmills were produced by the Griffiths Brothers based on designs by American Inventor Daniel Halladay.

Windmills all the way down

After these first Southern Cross Windmills were produced, the Griffiths brothers set about designing their own windmills, and the Southern Cross economy mill came to be.

Since then we’ve seen over 100 years of continued Australian manufacturing of top quality steel windmills,  that service Australians in all reaches of our wide open country.

Our current range of IZ Double Geared Windmills continue over a century of Australian manufacturing, and high quality water harvesting solutions.

In 2019, Southern Cross Windmills returned to Australian hands, to ensure that not only is Australia’s most iconic windmill Australian made, but also Australian owned and operated.
