Located in Vancouver BC, Cosulich Group Investments owns and manages a diverse group of investment companies.
The Cosulich Group, in existence since 1934, looks much different today than in our earlier years. For the bulk of our existence we were best known as Rivtow Marine, one of the largest marine and industrial groups on Canada’s West Coast. With as many as 2200 employees and over 100 vessels, we were involved in coastal towing, shipyards, log salvage, sorting and booming, gravel and aggregate, barge transport, and heavy equipment dealerships, among various other smaller ventures. Though we no longer operate in all the same industries, the entrepreneurial spirit survives in our 4th generation family business. Learn more about the types of businesses we're engaged in today, below.
A long time staple in our portfolio, the commercial real estate division has really come into its own since 2000 with a significant number of acquisitions taking place. Together with a number of strategic partners we currently have an equity stake in over seven hundred thousand square feet of commercial space, in addition to a few hundred thousand that we own and manage independently.
Stemming from our long history in the marine industry we amassed significant waterfront land holdings over the years. As our focus shifted from shipping to investments and real estate we began to realize on the value of these holdings in different ways including the development of more than eight hundred acres of recreational, residential, and industrial land throughout Howe Sound and along the Sunshine Coast. A few of our current listings are viewable here.
One of the newest additions to the Cosulich group of companies, our capital division works with a small group of trusted partners to make investments in public and private equity, provide mezzanine capital solutions, and engage in mortgage lending, in an effort to achieve superior risk adjusted returns and diversify our portfolio in the process.
We opened Delta Container (Delco) in 1997 on five acres of Tilbury Industrial Park land to service the off-dock needs of shipping lines serving Deltaport. Quickly emulating the success of sister company Marine Container (Marco), within four years we covered close 20 acres, grew capacity to almost 10,000 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) and had become the first off-dock depot in North America to stack containers eight high. Now approaching our 20th year, business remains strong thanks to our dedicated team working to provide customers with the best depot experience possible. For more on Delco check out their site here.
Cratex was added to the fold in 1999 after we recognized the increasing demand for intermodal containers outside the shipping industry. Operating alongside Delco allows us direct access to the inventory of some of the worlds biggest shipping lines meaning if we don't have what our customers need in stock already we can almost always procure it quickly and for a fair price. Whether traditional or custom, new or used, 20ft or 40ft, we have the container to fit our customers' requirements. Get a quote or just check out some of the custom jobs we've done here.
