April Networking Lunch with Andrew Malcolm – CEO The Malcolm Group
The Malcolm Group is arguably one of the UK’s leading providers of third-party logistics, construction and vehicle maintenance services.
Originating as a family-owned business in the Renfrewshire area back in the 1920’s, it’s safe to say The Group’s operations have grown substantially.
From its beginnings with assets of only a single horse and cart used to transport coal around the Johnstone area, not only has The Group expanded in terms of the services offered but also in its scale of operations which are now throughout the whole of the UK.
It was the hard work and strategic investment in vehicles, plant and depots by Donald Malcolm that brought the business to what we know today.
Starting life as a private company, The Group went on to enjoy forty-five successful years in the ‘public’ domain before ownership was once again with the Malcolm family.
Today, the company is run by Donald’s two sons, Andrew and Walter, who along with their team of 2,000 staff continue to see the business grow and develop.
Over the years, The Group has achieved much success and remains a forward-thinking organisation throughout its divisions but is proud to have preserved its heritage, in maintaining a personalised and hands-on management approach which is unique to any family-run business.
