Donald Malcolm was just fourteen when he inherited the family business in the 1940s. Its assets were a single truck and a horse and cart. By 1960 Donald had built up a fleet of thirty seven vehicles and seven items of plant.
The firm was acquired by Grampian Holdings which was renamed The Malcolm Group plc in January 2002 and was fully listed on the UK Stock Exchange. In May 2005, the Group was once again taken into private ownership by the Malcolm family.
