John Austin Constructions commenced business in 1996 founded by John Austin and established in Tasmania developing dairy farm packages throughout Australia, consisting of dairy buildings, sheds, houses and civil works. The entire business was moved in 1999 to Murray Bridge, South Australia due to its central location.
In 2006 John and Jodie (John's daughter) started JAC Homes as another faction of the business when they saw how the bigger builders were treating their customers, they saw a need for a more honest approach to the sales process in the residential housing sector. The residential housing side of the business was very successful and ended up the main business focus.
In 2012 Jodie’s father passed away and Jodie took on the full running of the business successfully completing over a hundred homes across the Murray-lands.
