Our story

Malin Group can trace its roots as far back as the mid -18th century with involvement in shipping and ship delivery through the successful years of ship construction and trade on the River Clyde in Glasgow.

This was a time of significant growth in the UK, built on the back of the success of the British Empire, with Glasgow, also known as the “second city of the Empire” building a wealth of navy & merchant navy vessels. The early roots of Malin Group were involved in the delivery of these numerous vessels around the world.

Today, we hold archives stretching as far back as the late 19th Century, providing an interesting glimpse into the life, and economics, of the shipping industry at the time, which you may find in our home, the South Rotunda.

The Group have continued to grow and diversify, and over the last 15 years has given life to a number of additional, specialist companies, cementing the Group’s place as one of the most comprehensive providers of end to end marine solutions in the world.

We are based in the iconic South Rotunda building in Glasgow. With a history stretching back over 150 years, the South Rotunda was once the southern entrance to 3 tunnels under the River Clyde.

 

Over the years, this iconic building has served many functions including an ice cream parlour during the famous Glasgow Garden Festival and The “Dome of Discovery”, which was funded by Glasgow City Council and BP Exploration to celebrate the scientific and industrial culture of the city. The building was subsequently used by the National Theatre of Scotland, utilising the space as a pop-up arts venue, forming a key part of the  Glasgow’s 2014 Cultural Programme and Commonwealth Games. The Malin Group acquired the rotunda in 2015, working over 3 years to bring it back to it’s former glory. 

A building steeped in history, reinvigorated for a modern, innovative office space, this building is the perfect home for the Malin Group.
