In 2008, having been in the property and construction industry for more than 10 years, Oxley's founder Mr Ching Chiat Kwong observed a growing demand for affordable private residential properties amongst young working adults, who desired a modern and vibrant lifestyle. By then, he had successfully developed and launched more than 13 property development projects in Singapore, all of which were fully sold within three months of their respective launches. 

In mid-2009, Mr Ching, together with current Deputy CEO , Mr Eric Low See Ching and substantial shareholder Mr Tee Wee Sien, decided to jointly-develop properties. This would allow them to take advantage of the economies of scale in undertaking property development businesses, and to share financial resources and expertise. 

Oxley Holdings Pte Ltd was incorporated in Singapore on 16 March 2010 as a private company limited by shares. On 13 October 2010, the Company was converted to a public company limited by shares and its name was changed to “Oxley Holdings Limited” accordingly.

Oxley Holdings Limited was listed on SGX Catalist in October 2010, and made its transfer of listing to the SGX Mainboard in February 2013.
