Galloway & Macleod Turns 100

10 January, 2022 | By Cameron

100 Years of G & M

The first meeting of Galloway & MacLeod Limited took place at 11 am on Thursday 12th May 1921. To mark the Centenary a 100th Birthday Cake was cut by Employee Trustee, Margaret Ferguson with directors and staff looking on exactly 100 years after the inaugural meeting.

The business was established at St Vincent Street in Glasgow in 1921 and moved to Stonehouse in 1924 when it took over Cander Mill. Cander Mill was water powered with an internal waterwheel which powered two sets of millstones producing oatmeal and grinding farmers grist.

Later the Cross Mill at Stonehouse and Allanton Mill at Shotts were added to the portfolio. The business now operates from a 4-acre site at Stonehouse, South Lanarkshire.

The business transferred to Employee Ownership in 2010 and currently operates with a Company Board of 4 and a Trustees Board of 4 including 2 Employee Trustees and an External Trustee.

The Company maintains a broad portfolio of feeds, fertilisers, and seeds to farm and equine customers throughout the country and has recently expanded its own range of performance feeds.

Although Galloway & MacLeod is 100, through take-overs of older established businesses it can trace continuous trading in agriculture going back to 1870. The Company strapline, 'experience. the difference' alludes to the long heritage, experience and ability to adapt which has sustained the business over three centuries of trading. The duty and commitment of current and former employees has contributed to the success of the business today.
