Our story

From a two-man crew to a team of over 250 strong, we’ve evolved as a company, our rich
history made us who we are today. This is the Windsor story:

1950

In the beginning

Founded by Sol Ehrenberg and incorporated in New York in 1950 as Arenburg Electronics, we supplied wire & cable to transit and toll booth companies, as well as local and state government contracts.

  • We were listed as “Arenburg Electronics” so we would be featured as the first listing in the Yellow Pages under “Buyers of Surplus Wire & Electronics”.
  • For film buffs - Rumor has it that in the classic film, “The Godfather”, the toll booth was provided from Arenburg Electronics.
  • Our initial warehouse was a 1,000 square ft. space located on Canal St, with 2 floors, and 2 employees. And a pulley elevator.
  • When servicing our clients, pickups and deliveries were done in this Willys station wagon
 

1958

Early growth

In 1958, we relocated to a 2,000 sq ft space in Farmingdale NY, which would remain our home for the next 30 years. During this period, we expanded our team as well as our product offerings, servicing and developing relationships with new industries, while still making deliveries in the Willys station wagon.

  • Adding electronics to our existing wire & cable product line, including: Line-corded products (1959), Electronic Vacuum Tubes used for Radio and TV and Military Components.
  • Doubled in size to 4 employees.
  • Landed our very first electronics customer, The Digital Equipment Corporation.

1988

Accelerated Growth

In 1988, we purchased the historical Ballantine Brewery building in Newark, NJ. During this period, we experienced dramatic growth, launching new internal and social outreach programs, and expanding our services worldwide to reflect the rapid global technological advancements.

  • Increasing from 2,000 to 70,000 square ft space.
  • Growing our team to 25 employees.
  • Initiating our first downstream solutions for products
  • Hiring our first disabled employees, as well as launching our veterans employment program.
  • Sending employees to school for further education.
  • Becoming the first company to process and test Bluetooth headsets and resell them as refurbished.
  • Expanding our services to include pre-consumer Electronic Components.
  • Creating our revenue-sharing consignment process for global brands, such as: Motorola, Leviton, Nokia, Ericsson, Flextronics and Boxcom.

2011

Going global

It was during this period that the key merger of Arenburg Electronics and Windsor Distributors occurred, with the new entity renamed “Windsor Global”.

  • Moving into a new, 135,000 square ft facility.
  • Growing our team to 150 employees.
  • Expanding into consumer electronics, including the refurbishing of: Cellular phones and accessories, Computers, tablets and Drones
  • Exclusive Reverse Logistics for Carriers, Distributors, and Retail Big Box Stores.

2015

Here we are & where we’re headed

In 2015, Windsor purchased an 8-acre, state-of-the-art facility in Union, NJ. It is here that we’ve grown to over 250 employees, expanded our remerchandising services to include our e-commerce site, and developed the “Certified by Windsor” brand.
