Brogan Holdings

This Strathclyde company was founded in 1924 by Scottish boxing champion Bernard Brogan, selling paraffin from the back of a horse-drawn cart. By the early 1960s, the company had grown into one of Scotland’s largest tipper lorry and excavating equipment fleets. It has diversified into fuel distribution and access plant hire and claims to be the largest independent fuel distributor in Scotland, still run by three of the founder’s grandsons, Campbell Brogan, Alan Tait and Alastair Brogan. Sales in 2008 reached £289.2m.
