Maclay & McIntyre, Glagow

maclay

Founded in Glasgow in 1885 by Joseph Maclay and Walter McIntyre with six small steamers to operate tramp services and in 1886 set up the Glasgow United Shipping Co. By 1896 the company owned 33 ships and concentrated on the coal trade to Algoa Bay and the ore trade from the Mediterranean. Joseph Maclay retired in 1905 the business was then run by Walter McIntyre.

At the outbreak of war in 1914 the company owned 51 tramps, but lost 16 during the war years. Between the wars, the ships were mostly employed in the coal and grain trades between South Wales and the River Plate and sugar from Cuba. During the second world war, seven ships were lost, leaving the company with only five. In the 1950s four Empire ships were purchased, but they could not compete with the downturn in freight rates and by 1960 the last two were sold and the company closed.
