First Nation Engineering is an incorporated private company established by the Carey Group and CPC Engineering, who have a common vision for sustainable business and Indigenous participation.
With 75 years of combined experience in mining, engineering and project delivery to Tier 1 miners in Australia, we pride ourselves on establishing and managing strong alliances with clients, employees and suppliers.
The Carey group is recognised as Australia’s leading Aboriginal commercial enterprise, with over 27 years of project delivery excellence in the mining, civil and training industries. It is a company that can be relied upon, and as a result of this reputation it had been approached numerous times by tier 1 clients to provide SMP and E&I services. An area that is currently serviced by only a small number of Aboriginal companies. Carey already had a strong and longstanding relationship with CPC Engineering and the two companies had successfully worked together in the past. Carey saw an opportunity to develop this relationship even further and approached CPC with a vision to develop a truly exceptional service provider. Following discussions over a number of months, and as a result of a shared vision for business and Indigenous participation; First Nation Engineering was born.
