Group History

Donald Malcolm was just 14 when he inherited the family business in the 1940s.

Its assets were a single truck and a horse and cart.

By 1960, when the firm was acquired by Grampian Holdings, Donald had built it up to a fleet of 37 vehicles - plus seven items of plant. Consistent investment in our business, often ahead of market trends lifted the company to its current status as a respected player in the logistics and construction markets.

On 18th January 2002, Grampian Holdings plc was renamed The Malcolm Group plc and was fully listed on the UK Stock Exchange.

In May 2005, after 45 successful years in the "public" domain, the Group was once again taken into private ownership by the Malcolm family.
