Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
This jute mill company was incorporated in 1883. Building of the mill was halted for about a year during a celebrated land dispute (1884-1886) with the Samnuggur Jute Factory Co Ltd who saw the new mill as a threat to their labour supply. Thomas Duff & Co Ltd took over the agency of the company in 1888. In 1969 the Victoria Jute Factory Co Ltd was merged with the Samnuggur Jute Factory Co Ltd and the Titaghur Jute Factory Co Ltd with the latter as the parent company and the Angus Company Ltd as a subsidiary of the group. In 1976 changes to the articles of association were adopted, reorganising the capital of the Company and transferring its residence to India, effectively passing management and control of the Company from Dundee to Calcutta.
