KEE Group has its roots planted firmly in the founding years of this great nation.
The same industry has been served by our family since 1889. That’s 130 years of leading experience!
Yes, there’s a reason why our directors Damon and Clayton are so passionate about the industry. Way back in 1889, their ancestors were making a name for themselves in the cartage business. James (Jasper) Spiers 1849-1935 was famously one of WA’s pioneers in the transport industry, and he passed his passion down the line from generation to generation; it truly is in their blood!
The Perth brothers dedicated twenty years of their lives in the trucks, starting Spiers & Sons in the 1990’s with their father, so it’s safe to say the family know the industry inside and out and back to front. KEE Group know what the standard is and aim to raise it every single time. KEE Group want to show Western Australia that this industry is great and that services like ours are paving the way for a better future for all of us.
