Kilmour Investments was established in 1955 to support the formation of its investment in Associated Kiln Driers (AKD Softwoods) in Colac, but has its origins in the Timber and Hardware business formed by William John (WJ) Inglis and his wife Emily Edith Inglis in Preston, 1906. Today, Kilmour Investments aims to protect and enhance its assets to provide wealth generation for current and future generations of shareholders.
An important component of Kilmour Investments is its heritage. Kilmour Investments can trace its origins back to the 19th century with the Inglis founding family now extending into its third century and fifth generation. The name Kilmour Investments refers to the home village of WJ Inglis’ father, Robert Inglis. Kilmaurs is a village in East Ayrshire, Scotland, twenty miles south west of Glasgow.
