Acquisition of John Holland

John Holland

We acquired 100% of John Holland shares in the year of 2015, which was the largest M&A ever in history for Chinese companies reaching out to Australia construction market. With support of CCCC, in light of the company’s ambitious 5-year development plan, JH has achieved business growth not only in its traditional business but also succeeded in penetrating into investment business and property development that further add value. Over 2.5 years after acquisition, JH has strengthened its industry position and gaining increasing market recognition.

John Holland is at the forefront of Australia’s infrastructure, building and rail markets. Operating across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, we have been transforming city skylines, connecting regional centres and providing vital infrastructure for more than six decades.

Our contracting and services capabilities cover the full spectrum of the traditional building and civil engineering markets as well as specialist engineering in the resources, energy, marine, water and waste water and tunnelling sectors. We also have unrivalled capability in rail construction, design management, systems engineering and assurance, network maintenance and operations and asset management.

We offer our customers a total service solution, participating in every link of the project lifecycle from origination, financing and development and design and construction to operations, maintenance and ownership of developed assets.

We constantly strive to exceed the expectations of our customers, in delivering our projects to the highest safety standards, enriching the communities in which we work and inspiring our people to create a brighter future.
