Owner / AC Jones Builders
With a vision to run a building company that values quality over quantity and create a name for himself, Alex Jones founded A C Jones Builders in 2015.
“I felt it was time to showcase my talents and lead a company that services all avenues (domestic, commercial and retail) with the knowledge to back it up,” says Alex. “When I started out, it was just me offering small carpentry works and household maintenance. I now employ two carpenters, an apprentice and an administration officer and we have a regular flow of bathroom/kitchen renovations, repeat real estate clients, government contracts and larger home renovations on the books.”
Originally from Brisbane, where he started his trade, Alex moved to Townsville when the company he was working for offered him an opportunity to relocate up north.
“I decided to stay in Townsville after finishing my trade, where I’ve created a good network to go out on my own,” Alex says. “We’ve grown significantly over the past two years, taking on bigger jobs, but we never take on more than we can manage. We’re known for our high quality workmanship and that’s something we’ll never compromise.”
You can expect to see A C Jones Builders as a Master Builders Awards entrant next year with Alex planning on putting forward one of the team’s cutting-edge bathroom renovations. Outside of work, Alex and his wife Courtney (and their two dogs Dexter and Lexi) enjoy spending time off-road driving and exploring what’s beyond the Townsville area.
“Anywhere that’s quiet and has a view makes us happy,” Alex says. “One of our favourite spots is Cape Tribulation because it’s so out of the way. We’re loving life up north.”
