A little bit about us

Crosbie Group

 The Crosbie family’s involvement in Newfoundland and Labrador business began in 1858 with the arrival of George Crosbie in Brigus. In 1881, George moved to St. John’s and the family business has been headquartered there ever since. His son John, subsequently Sir John, expanded into many diverse businesses and founded Crosbie and Company Limited at the turn of the century.

Sir John Crosbie’s legacy of entrepreneurship, public service and philanthropy has set the standard for three successive generations of the family. The Crosbie Group limited is now in its 5th generation as a family business and has sustained the spirit of the company’s last 100 plus years by continuing its involvement in industries that have been at the core of its success, while branching into the emerging and evolving sectors that the province has come to offer.

Having “lived and worked” in our current location on Crosbie Place off Crosbie Road for 53 years, the Crosbie Group Limited family has now moved to their new corporate headquarters on Hebron Way!

In March of 2015 it was announced that Crosbie Group has been named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2015. The Canada’s Best Managed Companies program recognizes excellence in privately-owned Canadian companies and symbolizes companies who are focused on their core vision, creating stakeholder value and excelling in the global economy. This was the Crosbie Group’s first year applying for this prestigious designation and it has been highlighted to us that few companies accomplish an award of this status in their first attempt. We are very proud to have joined a very inspiring group of companies sharing this designation.

Currently the Group’s interests are concentrated in the following four principle areas:

  • Offshore Oil & Gas
  • Onshore Industrial
  • Real Estate
  • Construction
