Safetyline Jalousie, founded by brothers Leigh and Nathan Rust in 2009
They have quickly established themself as a leading provider of high-performance louver window systems in Australia. Over the past decade, the company has experienced remarkable growth, expanding from a small 60 m2 manufacturing facility with five employees to a 2,500 m2 facility with over fifty employees. With headquarters in Sydney and offices in Brisbane and Melbourne, Safetyline Jalousie has become a trusted name in the industry.
Leigh and Nathan’s father had a successful manufacturing and installation business (Vergola NSW), which exposed them to the business and building sectors early on. Although initially discouraged from following in their father’s footsteps, the brothers eventually joined Vergola and gained experience in various roles, from manufacturing to sales and management. After a decade of working together, Leigh and Nathan decided to venture out on their own, founding Safetyline Jalousie.
The team at SMR Designs Pty Ltd consists of dedicated professionals who share a passion for quality and innovation. With a diverse workforce, the company values family and cultural diversity and is proud to have long-standing employees who have been with them since the beginning.
