Windel was also chairman of the supervisory board at the "Bielefelder AG für mechanische Weberei" (a weaving mill) and a member of the supervisory board at the "Ausrüstungsanstalt Wiesental AG" (a company for equipment) in Brombach.

In 1931 he purchased the manor house "Schlüsselburg" which is still owned by the family today. Source: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_Windel
