Having served his apprenticeship, Jason Lee worked his way up to Glazier Foreman, then went subcontracting. All this was building up to going out on his own.
In 2008, Jason started Hi Class Glass Ltd with the motto that “every client is our best client”.
However, Jason had to find work, build a customer base, get credit accounts opened with suppliers and then market his business – all whilst glazing during the day. So he pushed himself and drew on the contacts he’d established sub-contracting, and slowly things came together.
Then a big contract came along: Ever the optimist, Jason quoted for a big construction job… and got it. It stretched him but he did it well, and it led to the large construction contracts that are now part of the business.
Recently a new business partner came on-board to further grow the business. Kalem Good is an experienced glazier in his own right.
Hi-Class Glass now employs 11 staff including two apprentices with a vision “to continue growing and be an established and reputable glazing business”.
