In October 2019, AMCAL was named by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of LA’s Most Influential Family Owned Businesses. Here is part of the story. Read the rest at the link below.
Originally emigrating from India, Percival Vaz earned electronics and business degrees from UCLA, but found his early career choice in technology left him uninspired. After buying the first home for his growing family, Vaz got the real estate bug and started AMCAL in 1978 with his wife, Lux, in their garage as budding entrepreneurs.
Vaz has led the company’s growth from a single-family home investor to a premier multi-state developer of student, affordable and luxury apartment communities representing more than 80 developments and 7,000 units valued at $1.5 billion – with $2.5 billion more product in development or under construction.
