A commercial cleaning and property services company with 50% Indigenous Australian ownership.

Ganbara operates under its parent company Academy Services, a national enterprise established in 1979 with a long history of success and growth in the commercial cleaning industry. Academy Services was recently recognised in the South Australian Business Index Top 100 as the state's 46th largest company.

Ganbara is a partnership between Academy Services and Paul Brock, a descendant from the Barngarla people of the Whyalla and Port Augusta areas and an accomplished speaker, trainer, manager and executive. Together, we hope to contribute to the reconciliation movement through the generation of employment opportunities to improve the social and economic prosperity of Indigenous people in the communities in which we operate.
