About Canci Group Holdings
The Canci Family’s involvement in Western Australian businesses dates to 1974. In this year a 10-tonne crane was purchased, and Freo Machinery was then established in the suburb of Spearwood, in the City of Fremantle, Western Australia. ‘Freo’ being the colloquial term for Fremantle, and ‘Machinery’ for the plant and equipment they would supply to construction companies.
This business developed throughout the 20th century. A relocation from Spearwood to the main industrial precinct in Western Australia, Kwinana, further grew the business and its relationship with major miners, as well as industrial and construction companies in the area. In the 1990’s there was a restructure that resulted in the expansion into the northwest of Western Australia, Queensland and Northern Territory, as well as the establishment of Freo Construction. This family run business which started with the one crane grew to 150 cranes and 500 employees. In 2012 Freo Group was sold to Berkshire Hathaway.
After the sale of Freo Group, Canci Group Holdings was then established and is now a diversified business with a large industrial property portfolio. A key element in this diversification is the creation of its’ property development and management business, iParks and the continuation of Freo Constructions, now known as MACS Australia Group.
Canci Group Holdings comprises of many entities operating in the areas of commercial and industrial construction and maintenance services, as well as commercial and industrial real estate and property development. Below are our two main entities:
