A private Israeli company specializing in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

The company has been involved in several construction projects in settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).

In 1999, the company won a tender to build 72 housing units in the Har Homa settlement neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem. In 2004, the company won a tender to build 2,500 housing units in "Green Park" neighborhood, located in Modi'in Illit settlement in the occupied West Bank.

In October 2010, in an official letter to Who Profits, Denya Cebus’ parent company Africa Israel Investments stated: "Neither the company nor any of its subsidiaries and/or other companies controlled by the company are presently involved in or has any plans for future involvement in development, construction or building of real estate in settlements in the West Bank." However, the company soon after received a 78 million NIS contract to construct the C-Jerusalem project in the settlement neighborhood of Gilo in East Jerusalem. Denya Cebus was the contractor for the project. The C-Jerusalem project includes 121 housing units and its construction was completed in 2014.

In addition, the company has been involved in building the "Nofei Hasela" neighborhood in the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim in the West Bank. The company also built a commercial complex for Rami Levy HaShikma Marketing in the Atarot settlement industrial zone in East Jerusalem. The complex takes up 23,000 square meters and includes a supermarket, shops and parking areas.

The company built residential dormitories for the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in partnership with Minrav. The residential complex, located in East Jerusalem, includes 9 buildings and can accommodate 1,600 students.

In 2019, the company won a tender to carry out infrastructure and development works for the southern section of the American Road in East Jerusalem. The American Road is part of the eastern ring road, which connects the northern and southern parts of East Jerusalem. The project benefits Israeli settlers while cutting off Palestinian neighborhoods from one another.

The company is also involved in multiple projects with the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Israeli army. Its military projects include the construction of the Israeli army’s technology and communications base in Be’er Sheva. The subsidiary Denya-Alum is involved in conducting aluminum works in a military base in the Naqab (Negev) region.

Company subsidiary Geo Denya is involved in the construction of three sections of an underground wall around the besieged Gaza Strip under a Ministry of Defense contract valued at 770 million NIS.

Another subsidiary, Cebus- Rimon is involved in the construction of a military training city. This subsidiary was also involved in the construction of the Tel Aviv Jerusalem Fast Train (A1) route, which crosses into the occupied West Bank in two sections.

In January 2020, Cebus Rimon won a tender to supply and install prefabricated transformer rooms in the settlement of Modi’in Illit in the West Bank.
