In 2017, the ARA Group acquired 49% of CMC Indigenous Services and formed a partnership under the new banner ARA Indigenous Services. ARA Indigenous Services offers a diverse range of industrial services through the ARA Group, as well as guiding and mentoring all of ARA’s divisions to meet engagement and employment objectives with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.


ARA Indigenous Services began as a joint venture between Paul McCann and Michael O’Loughlin in 2015. 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 ARA 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.

  • Property Services
  • Building Services
  • Mechanical Services
