Our Story


Crafting Excellence Since 2008

At North East Stairs, our journey began in 2008 when Brendan Matthews, fueled by a relentless curiosity and a passion for making things better, founded our family-owned and operated business. Brendan's early fascination with mechanics and a knack for improving things led him to tinker with cars at home before stepping into the world of construction, working alongside his father.

As Brendan honed his skills, he embarked on a Joinery Apprenticeship, specializing in the custom manufacture of doors and windows. From crafting the simplest designs to the most intricate, Brendan proved himself as a master craftsman. His tireless work ethic and an impeccable eye for detail soon caught the attention of his mentors, who redirected him towards stair manufacturing, a field where his talents shone brightest.

As demand for top-notch staircases soared, Brendan, with the support of his then-employer, seized the opportunity to launch his own venture - North East Stairs.

Starting in a modest workshop at home, Brendan quickly realized that his ambitions needed more space to flourish. He expanded into the adjacent shed of his former employers on Ashmore Street in Wangaratta. When the chance arose to take over both sheds as North East Stairs Pty Ltd and North East Timber Windows & Doors, he embraced it.

Today, North East Stairs Pty Ltd stands larger and more capable than ever before. Our team comprises full-time and casual staff, including qualified carpenters, joiners, metal fabricators, apprentices, and dedicated support personnel. No project is too grand or too modest for us to handle.
