DEVEXPA was founded in 2007 in Singapore. In the beginning the company operated as a boutique consulting firm that helped Italian SMEs to build a presence in Singapore and expand in South East Asia. The company was also marginally involved in architectural design with a particular focus on interior design for restaurants and art galleries. Wine import operations took off in 2008 with a portfolio of 25 Italian wineries, which included some of the most exclusive brands, serving many of the most established restaurants in Singapore. 2010 saw a short partnership with a contemporary art gallery DEVEXPA designed in now trendy Tiong Bahru. Early operations also included business development for a group of Italian contemporary artists which culminated in Sydney, Australia in 2013 with the biggest overseas exhibition ever organised in the history of the group. In the same year the company opened an Italian restaurant focused on Piedmontese Cuisine. In 2017 the company started pivoting its focus on IT, developing a web-based procurement system designed for the F&B industry.
