The Leighton Group

The Leighton Group has evolved significantly from the construction company of its origins over 50 years ago. Today we are a diversified service provider to a range of private and public sector clients.


Leighton was founded in 1949, listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in 1962 and is based in Sydney, Australia. Today, we are:

    • One of the world’s major project development and contracting organisations
      • The world’s largest contract miner

        Leighton Holdings Limited, as the parent company of the Leighton Group, owns and operates through a number of diverse and independent operating companies: Leighton Contractors; Thiess; Leighton Asia, India and Offshore; and Leighton Properties. The companies operate in more than 25 countries from headquarters in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Dubai. Together, they employ over 60,000 people.


        Each company functions independently with its own Board and Managing Director, with management encouraged to innovate and be successful in an autonomous manner.

        At the same time, a corporate governance framework, defined by Leighton Holdings, sets standards for ethics and financial performance; health safety and rehabilitation; and community and environmental standards.
