About Us

Although the government banned asbestos in all its forms in 2003, they knew about its health effects long before.  Indeed, as early as the 1920s scientists realized that this substance caused disease.  However, it wasn’t until the mid-1980s that newly constructed homes and buildings were designed to be asbestos-free.

In 1989, our founder, James Tashin, realized that asbestos removal in Brisbane was going to be needed far into the future.  The health risks of asbestos were not about to go away just because building practices had changed.  Instead, the health and welfare of Brisbane residents were going to require the identification and subsequent removal of asbestos. 

James envisioned a company that would help both professionals and homeowners to not only control and manage their asbestos issues, but one that would help keep people healthy. 

From that inspiration, The Asbestos Guys were born.  We started small, doing basic asbestos inspection work.  Over time, we grew to take on a more full-service role, fulfilling our founder’s vision. 

For example, in the mid-2000s, we built our laboratory facility, which boasts state-of-the-art equipment for the evaluation of asbestos-containing materials.  Using transmission electron microscopy and polarized light microscopy, we can evaluate any number of substances for asbestos fibres. 

In 2011, we began our asbestos removal service in Brisbane.  Our one-stop, complete asbestos management, remediation, and disposal program has been employed by hundreds of homeowners and businesses in the region.  We have helped ensure the safety of their projects – from small renovations to total demolition.  In doing so, we have also maintained the health of families and employees across Brisbane – something we are incredibly proud of.

Over time, James’ vision of a company dedicated to healthy buildings in Brisbane has become a reality.  We are now proud to be the leading provider of asbestos services in the region.
