CMC Indigenous Services was founded in 2015 as a cleaning and property maintenance company specialising in the cleaning and maintenance (management and reporting) of offices, retail outlets, commercial buildings and multi-sites, as well as educational and aged care facilities.

In 2017, the ARA Group acquired 49% of CMC Indigenous Services and formed a partnership under the new banner, ARA Indigenous Services. Through this partnership, ARA Indigenous Services now offers the diverse range of industrial services provided by ARA, and will guide and mentor all of the ARA divisions to meet engagement and employment objectives with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Communities.

ARA Indigenous Services customers span across the commercial, government, educational, corporate, multi-site, office (major high-rise structures) and retail industries.


CMC Indigenous Services began as a joint venture between Paul McCann and Michael O’Loughlin. Paul and Michael have a long-standing friendship and together they saw an opportunity to use the means available to them to help end Indigenous disparity. Through Indigenous Services, they aim to create real opportunities for the Indigenous community in the areas of ownership, training and employment in the cleaning and maintenance industries.
