Happy 60th Birthday To Us! - Pacific Customs Brokers

The Pacific Group of Companies is celebrating a significant milestone this year - 60 successful years in business.

With the roots of our company planted in 1954, the Pacific Group of Companies was founded by John Cyril (Jack) Todd. Jack started the company with his wife Eileen at the Pacific Highway port of entry in Surrey, British Columbia. John Glendon (Glen) Todd, Jack's son, now leads the group of companies as the Chief Executive Officer.

During the past six decades, our Company has seen many ups and downs in the international trade landscape but has emerged successfully and experienced considerable growth and development. Built through hard work and service, the Company has filled a critical void in the international trade community. Today, we employ over 275 people with expertise in customs brokerage, trade compliance, freight management as well as cross-border and international trade.

In recognition of this diamond jubilee, the Pacific Group of Companies celebrated the occasion with present and retired employees, accompanied by their immediate families and grandchildren. The Company went back in time and hosted a Surf City Beach Party on Monday, June 30, 2014. The evening was filled with beach themed activities, music and food. The highlights of the event included a BBQ Beach Dinner, opening acts by the Holidays and Dr. Strangelove, plenty of games, contests, and prizes. The main draw of the evening was a performance by former Beach Boys and Dean Torrance of Jan and Dean in the Surf City Allstars band.

Over the years, we have had some outstanding people work for us. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to our current and past employees for their hard work and dedication which have been an important factor to our success.

We would also like to thank our many loyal clients and valued partners who have supported us through the years. We appreciate the opportunity to have done business with you. Though we grow large, we continue to strive to maintain a one-on-one relationship with you.

As we honor the past 60 years, we look to the future and expect the coming years to be ones of renewed vision, goals and accomplishments. Thank you for being a part of our journey!
