The ARA Group is continuing to build its New Zealand footprint following its acquisition of Auckland-based building services business, NEDA Facilities Services (NEDA).
Led by managing director Greg Froude, NEDA provides facility services for some of New Zealand’s largest organisations – from major retailers, commercial offices and infrastructure companies to government departments, educational facilities and heritage buildings.
Edward Federman, executive chair and managing director of ARA, said the company is looking forward to the opportunities the addition of NEDA represents for ARA.
“We hope to bring many of the services that we do in Australia, such as insurance repair, thermal imaging, and remedial building works to New Zealand through Greg’s business,” Federman said.
ARA first expanded into New Zealand in 2017, through the acquisition of Active Control and Security (ACS), as led by ARA Security’s managing director, Tony Franov.
The ARA Group operates offices for ARA Security and ARA Manufacture across Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Kerikeri.
Froude, who will be also be leading the ARA Security services businesses in New Zealand and reporting to Franov, said the acquisition is a “huge opportunity”.
“We’re really excited to see what kind of work we can bring on by offering a more complete, more comprehensive and extended service requirement for our clients.”
