Absolut’s Founder and the origins of Frameless Glass Pool Fencing

Founder’s Biography.

Absolut Custom Glass has actually been putting in Glass Pool Fences in the Gold Coast for almost a decade. During that time the business has developed and grown, but where did the Frameless Glass Pool Fencing 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 many high-end clothes outlets spread from the Sunshine Coast and down to Byron Bay. His early moves into business were in hospitality – owning several cafes and even a lucrative Broadbeach restaurant and nightspot.

After creating the fit out for his own restaurant he began to receive invitations to do the same for other locales in the area that were impressed with his designs. He realised that this may be his calling instead of 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 space in the emerging market of Frameless Glass Pool 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 as experts in Frameless Glass Pool Fencing. 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 four-wheel drive and glass carrying trailer and began to receive referrals from the work that they had already finished.

The business over time grew and grew and the business had to extend 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 decreased over that period but the team at Absolut Custom Glass Systems managed to still have enough work. The recovery was slow, but right now in 2017 the business is busier than ever before and now has 3 groups servicing areas from as far south as Ballina and north up to the Sunshine Coast.

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

Now, with 3 teams active and a busy maintenance department, Jason still finds time to actually meet every client and suggest the best design tips for all styles 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 business develop from a two-man unit to what it is today by delivering amazing service and a top quality product. We are always looking to innovate and expand, so there may even be other Absolut Custom Glass Systems businesses opening interstate shortly.
