Freedom FM is the largest provider of public housing maintenance services (Head Contractor) in Victoria. The company is owned and managed by Xavier and James Egan who have been involved in public housing maintenance for over 20 years, firstly as single trade contractors (both brothers are plumbers by trade) and then Head Contractors.
Freedom FM operate from the Seaford Head Office and also have offices in Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Wangaratta and Wodonga from where regional Housing contracts are managed.
Freedom FM are, essentially, a family company. Xaviers two sons are plumbers who are involved in the Ballarat and Dandenong contracts and most of the extended family are (or have been) involved in the running of the business over many years.
Currently, 4 of our five Operations Managers have either done apprenticeships with the company or have been tradesman or administrators who have been promoted through the ranks to become senior, valued contributors to the company’s success.
Xavier and James are proud of the culture that thrives within the company and have a deep affinity with the staff and the loyal group of subcontract companies who are integral to the ongoing development of the company. The turnover of staff and subcontractors is minimal, which is a reflection of the reciprocal nature of the Head Contractor role.
