Administrative / Biographical History
The Grimond family were flax spinners. By 1793 David Grimond owned Lornty Mill, Blairgowrie and his brother James owned Oakbank Mll, Blairgowrie. The business was established in Dundee in 1840, originally as a cloth merchant, but in 1847 Maxwelltown large handloom factories were acquired for production of various jute fabrics including carpets. Bowbridge works was created in 1857. In 1920 the firm amalgamated with other jute firms to form Jute Industries Ltd and went into voluntary liquidation in 1933.
