On 23rd June 2022, at the Donald Malcolm Heritage Centre Linwood, The Malcolm Group celebrated their Centenary in the presence of Transaid Patron HRH The Princess Royal.

As a corporate member of international development charity Transaid, The Malcom Group were delighted to welcome both representatives from the organisation and Patron The Princess Royal to the Donald Malcolm Heritage Centre for their special Centenary lunch.

The Princess Royal was shown around the Heritage Centre and the company’s history was explained by CEO Andrew Malcolm. HRH was then introduced to several guests who included customers, suppliers, staff and family and spoke to them at length about the company’s progress over the past 100 years.

Andrew Malcolm, CEO of The Malcolm Group expressed his gratitude to everyone who attended. He said: “I am delighted we are able to share this celebration with long standing customers, suppliers, employees (past and present), charities and family members. As we always say in Malcolm’s, the brand above the door is only the entry point, it’s the people behind it that make relationships long term. May I thank you all for attending and for your continued support.”

The Princess Royal also addressed the guests saying: “I am delighted to be at such a special occasion to mark 100 years of The Malcolm Group in, what I am sure you will agree, is quite a spectacular venue. Being surrounded by the heritage of the organisation in the form of vehicles as well as being able to meet those who have made the organisation what it is today, is a pleasure. I am delighted to have been able to celebrate this significant milestone in The Malcolm Group’s history with you all today.”

The celebrations concluded after a special centenary lunch and The Princess Royal unveiled a celebratory plaque to commemorate the occasion.
