Celebrating 15 years – Design, innovation, quality and performance are hallmarks of the Southern Star brand.
The Southern Star Group has proudly been supplying windows and doors to the Geelong and wider Victorian domestic housing market since 2002.
As a privately owned Australian manufacturer it specialises in the design, manufacture and distribution of an exclusive range of quality timber and aluminium window and door systems.

The company prides itself on being a wholly owned and operated Australian family business in a market which is dominated by internationally owned competitor brands.
With seven additional branches Australia wide, the company is proud to have firmly established its head office in Geelong.
Managing director Paul Gray said: “We started 15 years ago with just 30 employees and now we employ nearly 300 people here in Geelong. We are very proud to be a successful manufacturing business, employing Geelong people, in this city.”
As a vertically integrated business with its own powder coat line, glass processing plant and now the new Star range of window and door hardware, The Southern Star Group is in the unique and enviable position of having control over critical points of supply and the ability to oversee and monitor the quality and workmanship of product across the entire manufacturing process.
With combined experience of more than 150 years in the window and door industry, the South Star Group’s management team has steered the business through significant growth during the 15 years since inception.
Much of the success is due to the quality, expertise and experience that the company can offer the building industry across its broad range of products and service.
Added to this are strong relationships with key supply partners and timely and strategic business acquisition which has put Southern Star Group at the forefront of the industry in recent years.

This new facility has improved the capacity, speed and efficiency of the powder coat process.
