KANAKA Construction Company was established in 1990. The initial main goal of the company was to participate in the restoration of the disaster zone of Armenia after the terrible 1988 earthquake. In those days, Armenia received a lot of technical and other assistance, but many builders did not stay with the country for a long time due to various reasons, including the collapse of the Soviet Union. Having local skilled builders was critically important for the country. And KANAKA has become one of such companies that have been performing complex responsible urban construction tasks in a disaster zone for a long time. For example, the American Red Cross sponsored the construction of many houses in the cities of Spitak and Vanadzor, and these works were entrusted to KANAKA Construction Company, which successfully completed complex tasks on time.

Currently, KANAKA has vast experience, potential and all the necessary technical and human resources for the successful implementation of various construction, reconstruction and repair works practically in any region of Armenia.
