Canci Group Holdings was established after the sale of the family's Freo Group business to Berkshire Hathaway in 2012.
Canci Group Holdings 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 Maintenance and Constructions Services (Australia).
Canci Group is also a huge supporter of the Michele Canci Foundation, which works with organisations assisting those facing homelessness and its complications. The Foundation is passionate about the next generation of youth and aims to support initiatives that inspire and promote growth for them.
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. 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.
