Mr Jason Chew was born in a poor family in Batam with many siblings. Even as a student he had a neck for making money and would work as a part-time construction worker for a few dollars during the school holidays. He is filial and understanding in handling all his income to his mother to help out in the family finances.
After serving his National Service, he worked as a farm hand, bus ticket inspector & delivery man. As a man with ambition, he understood that being an Entrepreneur is the only way to make something out of himself. So, in 1969 he started his business in selling flags. In 1970, a customer who bought a Singapore flag from Jason and asked him if he is in the Flagpole business also and he said yes.
Without any experience Jason went to a stainless factory to cut out the required 21 feet pole, rented a lorry and together with a close childhood friend they digged their first hole and Jason installed his first Flagpole for the construction site of Furama Hotel. From then on, over 40 over years, Jason has installed hundreds of flagpoles all including many iconic landmarks sites all over Singapore.
One customer at a time, one deal at a time, Jason built his now 120 man team and group of companies.
