CEO Jonathan Whitworth announced today that his company is returning to its roots with the implementation of a new brand name called Seaspan Marine Corporation. The former corporate identity of Washington Marine Group is now retired, and Seaspan Marine Corporation is taking the helm as the legal entity and parent company for both our marine transportation and shipyard divisions.
“This is not so much a change as it is a revival of the existing Seaspan brand,” said Jonathan. “Our group of companies have proudly served the BC coast for well over a century, and the Seaspan name has been deeply rooted in the fabric of this Province for over 40 years.”
Within the rebranding, Seaspan Coastal Intermodal Company’s name has also changed to Seaspan Ferries Corporation.
There is no legal name change to the three shipyard entities owned by the company.
The Washington family continues to own Seaspan and its holdings, which include Seaspan Ferries Corporation, Vancouver Drydock Company Ltd., Vancouver Shipyards Co. Ltd., and Victoria Shipyards Co. Ltd.
