Our Story. When we look back at how far we’ve come – the projects we’ve completed, the clients we work with – it’s surprising to think Eon Protection has only been in business since 2017. Under the leadership of entrepreneur and Nyoongar Traditional Landowner Gerard Matera, Eon Protection has become a state-wide force with a hands-on management team that has over 20 years’ experience in security, military and law enforcement.
As a Western Australian based security services company, we deliver integrated services from security, cleaning, corporate risk solutions, industrial protection to support services for our commercial and public sector clients across WA. But as an 100% Aboriginal-owned enterprise on a mission to transform Indigenous lives, we do so much more. For our clients. For our community. For Western Australia.
The strategy behind EON
Creating meaningful, positive change from the in side out, needed a bold name and purpose. EON stands for Empowering our Nation. We set bold targets for Aboriginal employment and Indigenous business and community engagement. The framework for achieving them is set out in our Aboriginal Engagement Strategy, our Aboriginal Supplier Development & Subcontracting Strategy and our Local Content Policy (LCP). But what does all this mean? It means more opportunities for Aboriginal people and businesses. More opportunities for Aboriginal people to work. To grow. To build careers and businesses. To challenge misconceptions. To break the circuit and bridge the gap.
