Brian Stegley and George Barrow Started Stegbar Sliding doors in 1946 in Melbourne Victoria to manufacture clock cases and timber office equipment like chairs and tables. Timber window sales commenced in 1950 and the revolutionary window-wall manufacturing began in 1953. Continuing the growth and sales meant larger facilities at Springvale Victoria in 1957 and bigger better offices in New South Wales and Queensland. In 1958 Stegbar opened a new store in the ACT and South Australia.

Aluminium windows were added in 1963 and Stegbar sliding doors, which had by then grown to employ over 400 workers, was floated as a public company. In 1971 F&T Industries acquired Stegbar and was in turn acquired by ACI Australia Limited in 1981.
