Have you met Jason Yet?

Absolut Custom Glass has been putting in Glass Pool Fences on the Gold Coast for almost a 10 years. During that time the business has flourished and grown, but where did it all start?

Absolut began with Jason Walsh.

Jason grew up on the Gold Coast with his family being involved in the fashion business. His family had numerous high-end clothing outlets spread from the Sunshine Coast and down to Byron Bay. His early enterprises into business were in hospitality – owning several cafes as well as a lucrative Broadbeach restaurant and nightspot.

After designing the fit out for his own restaurant he began to receive invitations to do the same for other locations in the area that were impressed with his designs. He realised that this may possibly be his calling rather than hospitality. In the early 2000’s Jason partnered with a good friend and colleague that happened to be a glazier. He could see there was a gap in the emerging market of glass pool fences with domestic glass fencing and balustrade.

This is where the Frameless Glass Pool Fencing business was born and the name Absolut Custom Glass Systems began to spread through the Gold Coast. After sourcing some good providers of materials and finishing some jobs for family and friends he decided it was time to change careers and sell up his hospitality interests. It had not been long before Jason had set himself up in the industry with a four-wheel drive and glass carrying trailer and began to get referrals from the work that they had previously finished.

The company slowly grew and grew and the business had to expand to be able to meet the ever-expanding market. The company made it through the global financial crisis of 2009 and the bursting of the property market bubble. Work may have reduced over that period but the team at Absolut Custom Glass Systems managed to still have enough work. The recovery was slow, but currently in 2017 the business is busier than ever before and now has 3 teams servicing areas from as far south as Ballina and north up to the Sunshine Coast.

This is where Jason’s design skills have been put to great use. There are a lot of glass pool fences companies on the market and sadly many of them do not put much thought and feelings into how visually appealing the end project will look. The easy part is construction and compliance when it comes to pool fences. Absolut excels because Jason understands how necessary it is that end product adds value to your property and is as least intrusive as practical.

Now, with three teams busy and a busy maintenance department, Jason still finds time to actually meet every client and recommend the best design tips for all kinds of glass installations. The business may have expanded to meet the demand of glass balustrading and glass pool fences, but Jason still treasures this human element. Jason Walsh has seen his company develop from a two-man team to what it is today by delivering fantastic service and a quality product. We are always looking to innovate and expand, so there may even be other Absolut Custom Glass Systems companies opening interstate shortly to expans the Glass pool Fences business.
