About Us

JAS (John Arnold Shopfitters)’ history dates back to 1981 when John Arnold went into business to fill a hole in the market where customer service and a quality, cost effective job well done seemed to be missing. His legacy remains with these making part of our core principles today.

JAS is experienced in all facets of shop fitting from Retail Stores, Commercial fit outs to the Zoo enclosures for Wang Wang and Funi.

Throughout the years we have completed work on a national basis from Perth to Cairns and all work is built and controlled from our Adelaide head office. We use qualified trades in all fields that only offer the best quality as a standard.

JAS works closely with it’s clients to ensure a smooth transition from concept to completion and we thrive on making the building process as easy as possible. We understand that all the client wants or needs to do is; start using the space.

We have increased our capabilities to include our own interior design service. By appointment; our interior designer will go through your project with you in our selection centre to ensure the look and finish you desire is the one you get.
