cowdroy Company History
Established in 1890 initially as an advertising agency, Cowdroy has consistently been a pioneer in a number of industries, including producing the first illustrated advertisement in the Sydney Morning Herald and the world’s first sliding glass aluminium track.
The latter creation helped steer Cowdroy in a new direction towards the Australian hardware industry.
Since then, Cowdroy has been responsible for other major inventions such as the highly successful ball bearing sliding glass track, a sashless sliding window and a sliding door track system featuring ball bearings on a top race section, which was patented and sold under manufacturing license around the world.
Today, Cowdroy is owned by the Alchin Long Group, a family owned company that specialises in the construction hardware industry and operates a number of brands, including Doric, Colonial Castings, Lock & Roll and Azuma. Cowdroy products can be found in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, across the rest of Asia Pacific and North America.
