Secure-Rite Mobile Storage Acquires Cratex Container Sales & Rentals.

When a plan for real estate development shakes hands with another’s vision for growth in the storage industry.

Vancouver, BC: Secure-Rite Mobile Storage, specialists in mobile storage and custom structures with five locations in Western Canada, has acquired Cratex Container Sales & Rentals, a large shipping container supplier in Delta, B.C. The move to acquire Cratex stemmed from The Cosulich Group’s decision to sell the land at 7664 80 St, Delta, BC merging seamlessly with Lucas Griffin’s desire to solidify Secure-Rite’s recent entrance into the Vancouver market. 

Dave Bush, Managing Owner of Cratex Container Sales & Rentals, led the business through significant success and the establishment of a respected brand name in the Lower Mainland for over 30 years. With an emphasis on high quality workmanship, exceptional product selection, and superior customer service, the choice to pass on a legacy came with careful consideration and an assured continuation of the values that the business has always upheld. 

“I first met Lucas Griffin at an industry event in Florida over 12 years ago”, Bush states, “and I was impressed by his integrity, drive, industry knowledge and customer focus. When the time came for our Family Investment Group to sell Cratex, Mr. Griffin and his team at Secure-Rite were our top choice to serve our customers and carry on the legacy we started so many years ago.”

Following 16 years of success at locations in the Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon, and Calgary markets, Lucas Griffin, Owner and President of Secure-Rite Mobile Storage opened the gates to a fifth location in Surrey in November 2020. Sharing a similar values-based business approach, Griffin’s emphasis on excellence, community, agility, and grit, made the acquisition of Cratex Container Sales & Rentals the perfect addition to a growing portfolio, as well as a key accelerator for Secure-Rite’s expansion plans over the next 10 years.

Griffin recalls, “Cratex Container Sales & Rentals was the very first company I visited after launching Secure-Rite. I was very impressed by the Cratex staff, the well-organized yard, and the wide variety of container inventory and modifications. Cratex has always been a shining example of how a business in our industry should be run, so it is an honor and privilege to now own the Company that fueled my dreams from the very
start. We are delighted to welcome Cratex Customers to the Secure-Rite Family, and we are confident that they will continue to receive the highest level of service and quality, at competitive prices. Welcome!”

All of the Cratex clients and assets will be managed under the ‘Secure-Rite’ brand, with a seamless transition to the same superior level of service and quality offerings they have already come to know. In addition to container sales, rentals, and modifications, Secure-Rite is pleased to offer loaded container deliveries, residential moving, container accessories, in-yard storage, and so much more!
