Our Background

Max Coombes & Son Pty Ltd is a Tasmanian owned and operated family firm.

Starting in 1963 Betty and Max Coombes Snr began working from the family home, in Chapel Street, Glenorchy, cleaning and repairing Venetians, when they couldn't find anyone to repair their blinds.

Then Max Coombes Jnr left school at the age of 15 due to his father's ill health.  With Max Coombes Jnr unable to drive his sister Marlene Coombes, would drive him to the homes to quote or complete jobs, while Betty was at home with the family cleaning and repairing the blinds and doing book work.

Max Coombes Jnr soon took over the business, with his wife, Lorna Coombes, joining him in 1977.

Over the past 50 Years Max and Lorna have expanded the buisness to include Screens, Awnings and a variety of blinds.

It is now Max and Lorna's time to retire handing the business and knowledge over to their daughter, Elisha and son, Stewart.  With their focus on modernisation, quality and customer service, which we are renown for.
