Looking back
Brief timeline
When Tony Khoury founded Vega back in good old 1989 (just a year after Australia celebrated its bicentennial), his vision for the business was akin to daydreaming next to the water cooler than reality.
With non-stop hard work, and armed with a single-minded quest for prospecting and building connections in the marketplace, slowly the mirage turned out to be real.

Vega proved itself when clients started to slowly trickle in. Those same early clients were responsible for the phenomenal growth many years afterwards.

Vega is proud of its beginning, and gratefully recognises the support of its early patrons; Minter Elison, Sydney City Council, Lend lease, Jones Lang Lasalle, Matchbox Toys, Konica, Tonka Toys, Wilson Parking, Compaq and many others.

Through a consistent service driven philosophy fine-tuned over the years, Vegagroup still enjoys the support of many of our early clients, with the added patronage of new clients seeking our brand of service.

How Vega evolved
The early years of Vega were sort of unrestrained growth, as the new company was trying to find an identity for itself in a competitive industry.

Clearly more support was needed and Tony started to look for the right people to help the business forward. He presented his brothers with the opportunity to be on board; Joe Khoury joined Vega as an Executive Manager while Steve and Colin looked after the operations side.

To head and lead the company, an old friend of Tony's, Peter Beesley joined in as a General Manager in 2002 until his retirement in 2004. With Peter's direction, Vega was positioned as a competitive provider in the Facilities Management industry, serving existing and new clients.
Vega launched VegaBuilt, an independent fully licensed company construction arm of the business, and Joe Khoury headed this new division.

VegaBuilt was a natural add-on growth to the existing business. Our clients demanded it with their need for the uncomplicated speedy response they're used to with Vega. The marketplace demanded it as well, with the demand for value-for-money quality-housing accommodations.
Vegabuilt was soon busily engaged with various construction projects (Commercial & residential), leading to a successful relationship with Burger King (Australia), constructing fifteen of its BK restaurants.

On the residential side, VegaBuilt continued to acquire and develop various sites in the Sydney region with projects value ranging from $1.5m to $6m.
