The history of VEC

The history of VEC

Innovation & Excellence history in the making

VEC Civil Engineering began its successful journey as a bridge construction company under the banner of Van Ek Contracting Pty Ltd.

VEC was founded in 1994 by two highly respected Tasmanians (Kees & Pam van Ek) and established in Ulverstone on Tasmania’s North West Coast.
Over the years, VEC has grown to be a company commonly known in the market as one that invests heavily in our employees to provide a safe and inviting workplace. Although ownership was transferred in October of 2014*, VEC continues to withhold the local culture and stay true to our values by committing to supporting the local industry.

*VEC became a wholly owned subsidiary of Downer EDI as of the 31st of October 2014.

VEC was the first precaster in Australia to construct T Roff Super Tee Beams. From this VEC has continued to lead the way in being the leading bridge contractor in Tasmania with offices and projects in several states of Australia.
