Supporting the Community

The team at ‘Apex Shutters & Blinds’ value high integrity, moral, and compassion. We pride ourselves in supporting the local community, charitable organisation, and humanitarian projects.

Originating from a modest and simple lifestyle in a low level province area in Cebu, Phillipines. The Murillo family migrated to Australia in 1984 in hopes of a better lifestyle for their families 3 generations. Coming from a humble lifestyle we understand the importance of supporting others in need, struggling, and those individuals or families living in poverty.

The Murillo family are active in the local community supporting local Christian groups and Church’s along with still remaining as active supportors of community projects in their home town area of the Philippines.



Buying locally means investing in your community, access to superior services to the big companies, and higher quality products. It might be very tempting to purchase a product purely on the price tag, but buying Australian-Made furniture has numerous benefits:

  • Supports the local community.Australia's economy cannot thrive without you and your purchases. By spending money on Australian-Made items, you're keeping our economy in good check - and keeping local businesses and jobs alive.
  • Uses local materials.Good quality shutters that is made in Australia often uses timbers sourced locally. And while Australia is not immune to unsustainable or illegal practices, we do adhere to FSC certification standards. When purchasing your piece, The Wilderness Society recommends you check to make sure it's FSC certified and plantation grown to ensure it is as sustainable as possible.
  • Faster installation times.If you're importing from overseas, you can bet you will be waiting a while for this to arrive. By purchasing locally, you are likely looking at a shorter delivery time. Or, you can even pick up the times yourself.
It's never been more important to buy Australian-Made than right now. A thriving manufacturing sector is critical to Australia's economic future and prosperity. Every dollar spent on locally made products has a direct impact on the livelihoods of Aussie manufacturers, as well as the wider community. By buying Australian-Made, not only you are getting products made to the highest manufacturing standards, you are also pumping money back into the economy, creating jobs, strengthening local industries and supporting local communities.
