Our History

The Cosulich family has been linked to the field of chemicals and petrochemicals transportation since 1919 when Dott. Arturo Cosulich graduated in Chemistry from Genoa University in Italy.
In 1952 Dott. Giorgio Cosulich, son of Arturo, founded the first private chemical laboratory “Cosulich Chemical Laboratory” serving the port of Genoa and carrying out qualitative controls on chemicals and petrochemicals cargoes transported by sea for ENI, ESSO and many other early players in the market.
