A & S Henry & Co (Dundee) Ltd was incorporated in 1953 as a separate company within the A & S Henry Group to manage the parent company's operations in Dundee at Victoria Road Calender. The Company also had premises in London and Liverpool for the manufacture of cotton and jute sacks. Subsidiaries of the Company included E Carr & Sons Ltd, London, Jaffé Bros & Co (Dundee) Ltd, Moore & Weinberg (Dundee) Ltd, A & S Henry & Co (Paper Sacks) Ltd, and English Spinners Ltd, Blackburn. The firm also had a 25% holding in Tay Spinners Ltd, which was sold in 1970. In 1972 the parent company was taken over by Great Universal Stores and in the same year A & S Henry & Co (Dundee) Ltd, was taken over entirely by the Titaghur Jute Factory Co Ltd. The Titaghur Company's holdings in Hardie and Smith Ltd and Dundee Brattice and Waterproofing Co Ltd, (acquired earlier in 1972) were transferred to A & S Henry (Dundee) Ltd, in December of that year for administrative purposes. William Watson (Dundee) Ltd, was acquired by the Company in 1980. In 1978 Titaghur sold 51% of its interest in A & S Henry & Co (Dundee) Ltd, to Asiatic Jute Co Boston, USA and in 1983, A & S Henry & Co (Dundee) Ltd, and its subsidiaries were placed in the hands of a receiver.
