W&R Barnett is the holding company of a group of international commodity trading, storage, agribusiness and industrial companies. It is a global trader of molasses and related liquid commodities, and the leading trader of grain and non-grain animal feed commodities in Ireland.
The company is also an independent supplier of bulk liquid storage facilities to the UK food, feed, industrial and energy sectors with over 400,000 cubic meters of storage assets located on the Mersey, Humber, Thames and Avonmouth.
Through subsidiary, John Thompson & Sons, it is the largest manufacturer of animal feed in Northern Ireland. It entered the corrugated packaging market in 2015 after acquiring Logson Holdings. Turnover fell reflecting the fall in global commodity prices. Profits also fell in the year in the absence of the one-off sale of listed investments a year earlier.
In addition to significant capital investment, W&R Barnett acquired The Boxshop Limited in East Kilbride, Scotland and Nordische Futterfette Carroux GmbH & Co Handels KG in Hamburg.
