Windlass was the first to set up his business single handedly in Dehradun.
He not only developed the city into a business center but also offered employment to the natives by setting up the industry in the heart of the city. Windlass Steel Crafts is commonly known as the Khukri Factory.
Following the footsteps of Mr. Windlass, his son Mr. Sudhir Windlass stepped into the business and introduced modern techniques and focused on the expansion of the industry. Being a visionary, Mr. Sudhir Windlass- streamlined the manufacturing unit by bringing every essential element under one roof.
