MACA’s success has been built upon strong relationships forged with our employees, clients and suppliers.
Together with Thiess, we have the power to continue to make a meaningful impact for the future.
We are committed to fostering sustainable practices, promoting environmental stewardship, and prioritising the well-being of our communities.
The synergy between MACA and Thiess positions us perfectly to tackle the challenges ahead and embrace the opportunities that arise.
We don’t have all the answers but we know what success looks like and we’re committed to make it happen.
MACA was originally founded in Western Australia in 2002 as Mining and Civil Australia. The company has now grown from a specialised mining and civil contracting business to a large Australian and International contracting partner of choice. Through a number strategic acquisitions, MACA has grown to holistic, end-to-end Mining, Infrastructure and Construction sector partner. In 2022 MACA was acquired by Thiess Group Holdings Pty Ltd and proudly became a subsidiary of the Thiess Group.
The driving force behind MACA’s success for the past 20 years has been our people. We put the safety of our people first because we care. By engaging with our clients, subcontractors and employees, we drive this commitment and the shared responsibility for our safety, health and the environment.
At the core of our business, is our drive towards our social responsibility and the communities in which we operate. We show leadership and take responsibility for the community and acknowledge that our choices can have a positive impact and leave a legacy.
Our “Can Do” approach is our competitive advantage which sets us apart from other contractors. We have a solution-focused outlook and develop collaborative relationships with our clients, partnering together to achieve a project outcome.
