Our History

What started as one man with a ute, a wheelbarrow and a vision, has become an award-winning construction company with a rich 20-year history.

Starting in Darwin in 1997, managing director Brett Dixon began with concreting driveways and paths. Before long he had completed a kerbing project at the Darwin International Airport and expanded his business into Asia.

Through his personable nature, unwillingness to compromise on quality and strong work-ethic, Brett has built Jaytex Construction into a company defined by exceptional financial capacity with a reputation for being fair, cooperative and flexible with contractual relations.

Brett and his family moved to South Australia in 2015 to be closer to family.

Brett commenced designing and constructing two bespoke, large, luxury residential homes in Glenelg.

The move to South Australia and subsequent handing over the reins to young business partner Matthew Moss progressed Jaytex with a view to establish in both markets.

In 2015 Brett handed over the reins to young business partner Matthew Moss. Matthew has over a decade’s experience in providing strategic and operational advice to large corporations and smaller enterprises. Matthew began his career as a Chartered Accountant. For nine years he worked at a strategic level within his clients’ business, providing the full range of accounting and taxation advisory services, detailed budgeting, business modelling, reporting, system reviews, stock control, business restructuring, strategic planning, HR, and profitability analysis.

Matthew has been involved in buying and selling properties, property feasibility studies and establishing appropriate business and taxation entity structures. Matthew has significant expertise in the property, wine, and viticulture industries and possesses an astute commercial acumen that he applies to every project. Matthew is a habitual learner, and is a licenses real estate agent, holds a diploma in Project Management, Cert IV in Work Health Safety, and has no plans to stop learning.

Matthew has built on Brett’s existing achievements and progressed the company by increasing governance, documenting and implementing new safety and quality systems and adopting new operating software.

These days Jaytex Constructions is building key multi-million-dollar infrastructure and is a leading Territory business and local employer. It’s a legacy we take pride in. The core company values – trust, integrity, transparency and family spirit, are the same now as when Brett established the business. This is testament to the culture of respect and dedication you’ll find at Jaytex Construction.
