Although the Inchcape Group has ventured into the Far East relatively recently, the companies it has acquired were among the first to be established there. As we saw in Chapter 1, in Canton, the merchant house of Gibb Livingston & Co. was founded in 1836, to be followed by the tea traders, Gilman & Co., in 1840. In Shanghai, the silk merchants, general trading and shipping agents who were ultimately to become Dodwell & Co. Ltd were established in 1858, and Caldbeck Macgregor & Co.’s wines and spirits business began in 1864.
