Ferguson Transport & Shipping Celebrate Over 55 Years in the Industry

Fifty years ago, in 1964, BP began exploring for oil and gas in the North Sea, the Beatles took America by storm and the space race was in full swing, with astronauts preparing for the first manned flight into space. Five years prior to this, Archie and Anne Ferguson began a small haulage business in Ardrishaig, Arygll with one lorry.

To commemorate the 55th year of business for Ferguson Transport & Shipping, Group Managing Director Alasdair Ferguson presented founder member Anne Ferguson with a Christmas hamper at the staff Christmas party on Saturday 6th December 2014, in recognition of Anne’s exceptional hard work and input to the business, before she formally retired in 2004.

Sadly Archie is no longer with us to see the successes of the company, but we think he’d be very proud to see how the family business has grown, especially in recent years.
