National Family Business Day

Today is National Family Business Day. It is estimated that over 3 million firms across the UK are family-owned including the McAllister Group which was established as McAllister Brothers Ltd  in 1971 by three brothers in Newry. Over 45 years later the business has evolved and grown considerably with offices in international markets yet the firm is still owned and managed by the current generation of the McAllister family. Today we salute all the family businesses across the UK and Ireland which are the lifeblood of many communities making a huge contribution to the economy and society at large.
