Aboriginal group buys fencing contractor

Karlka Developments is set to more than double its annual turnover to $35 million after acquiring Perth company FenceWright for an undisclosed sum.

Indigenous-owned Karlka, established in 2012, is the commercial arm of the Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal Corporation, which represents the Nyiyaparli people of the east Pilbara.

It places a focus on training and employment, and generates about $15 million in annual turnover through its subsidiary organisations and joint venture partnerships across the areas of facilities management and recruitment.
