Kingkira Group Pty Ltd is a 100% Aboriginal owned business providing a range of fully integrated support services to the mining, oil and gas, construction, municipal and commercial sectors.
“Our land” forms the basis of our ethos and vision; and all that we do is driven by a passion to both protect the environment and to provide opportunity and purpose to the communities and lands on which we operate.
Kingkira Group is wholly owned and operated by Tammy O’Connor, a traditional owner from the Pilbara region with family connection through the Nyiyaparli and Palyku Aboriginal groups, and links to Kariyarra and Ngarluma people on her grandmother’s side. The business name “Kingkira” reflects Tammy’s daughter’s names Kingston and Shakira.
Having been brought up in the Pilbara region residing in Marble Bar, Tammy has a wealth of knowledge and insight of local community issues and native title, providing education and guidance to help communities and business achieve sustainable development. Tammy studied at various institutions and has worked remotely on mines sites and in communities to continually build her knowledge and business skill set.
Established in early 2014, Kingkira has experienced organic growth through a simple strategic vision; “to provide development opportunities for Aboriginal people, and in parallel manage all aspects of the land in which the business operates to maintain a sustainable future”.
Kingkira acknowledges the owners of the land in which it operates. We strive to work together with our local neighbours to achieve common goals, provide sustainable long term solutions, create opportunities through training, development and business for future generations and to seek new ideas and do them differently.
Its local know how supported by the global solutions, surety of service and world class technologies of our key partners, that makes Kingkira the ideal service partner for customers wanting safe, innovative service solutions.
Kingkira’s capacity for change and commitment to service excellence is driven by a firm belief that to deliver sustainable social benefits, we must first and foremost create and maintain a successful, safe and financially sound business model.
At Kingkira, we strive to manage all aspects of our environment to ensure it remains sustainable for future generations. In parallel, we endeavour to engage local people, contractors and suppliers to be part of our journey. Our footprint extends throughout Western Australia into the Pilbara Region where we continually build relationships with local people, suppliers and clients.
