We have a unique level of Pool Fence experience on the G0ld Coast – We have actually been setting up Glass Pool Fences on the Gold Coast for almost a 10 years. In that time Absolut has flourished and grown, but where did it all begin?
Absolut began with Jason Walsh.
Jason grew up on the Gold Coast with his family being involved in the fashion business. His family had lots of high-end clothes outlets scattered from the Sunshine Coast and down to Byron Bay. His early endeavors into business were actually in hospitality – owning several cafes and also a successful Broadbeach restaurant and nightspot.
After developing the fit out for his own restaurant he began to receive offers to do the same for other places in the area that were impressed with his designs. He realised that this could be his calling as opposed to hospitality. In the early 2000’s Jason partnered with a friend and colleague that happened to be a glazier. He could see there was a hole in the emerging market of domestic glass fencing and balustrade.
This is where the Frameless Glass Pool Fencing company was born and the name Absolut Custom Glass Systems began to spread through the Gold Coast. After sourcing some good suppliers of materials and finishing some jobs for friends and family 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 4wd and glass carrying trailer and began to receive referrals from the work that they had already done.
The company step-by-step grew and grew and the company had to extend to be able to meet the ever-expanding market. The company withstood the global financial crisis of 2009 and the bursting of the property market bubble. Work may have slowed down over that period but the team at Absolut Custom Glass Systems managed to still have enough work. The recovery was slow, but now in 2017 the business is busier than ever before and now has 3 crews servicing areas from as far south as Ballina and north up to the Sunshine Coast.
This is where Jason’s design skills and Pool Fence experience have been put to good use. There are a lot of glass pool fence companies on the market and the sad thing is many of them do not put much thought into how visually appealing the finished task will look. The easy part is building and compliance when it comes to pool fences. Absolut excels because Jason understands how necessary it is that end product actually adds value to your property and is as least intrusive as possible.
Now, with 3 teams on the move and a busy maintenance department, Jason still finds time to actually meet every client and suggest the best design tips for all types of glass installations. The business may have expanded to meet the demand of glass balustrading and pool fences, but Jason still treasures this human element. Jason Walsh has seen his company grow from a two-man team to what it is today by delivering amazing service and a quality product. We are always looking to innovate and expand, so there may even be other Absolut Custom Glass Systems businesses opening interstate shortly.
