Proud of our past, ambitious for the future

Denholm Group

The Denholm Group is a group of companies owned by the Denholm family that operates businesses in a number of diverse markets in order to provide a diversification of opportunity and risk for its shareholders.

Our holding company is J. & J. Denholm Limited. This company derives its name from the original business that was formed in Greenock by James Denholm in 1866.  He was joined by his brother John in 1869 and it is John's descendants who own the majority of the company today.

We started out as a Ship Agency business and over the years we have extended into new businesses.  Today our business areas are Shipping, Logistics, Seafoods and Industrial Services. We have a turnover of £230m, employ over 1,000 people and have net assets of £120m.

Our key assets are our people.  They and our businesses all share our values enshrined in the Denholm Standard of upholding the law, integrity, fairness and respect.

We are proud of our past but are ambitious for the future.
