The Humber Estuary is poised for a wave of change as DAN Shipping & Chartering, a subsidiary of the John Good Group, acquires Arthur Smith (Grimsby). This strategic move not only strengthens DAN Shipping’s presence in the maritime sector but also opens the door to exciting possibilities in the burgeoning offshore renewables market.

Founded in 1936, Arthur Smith has established itself as a cornerstone of shipping services in the ports of Grimsby and Immingham. Their expertise and reputation will be integrated into the John Good Group’s Maritime Division, joining forces with DAN Shipping and Bay Shipping.

This acquisition marks a pivotal moment for the John Good Group. It signifies a strategic expansion into the offshore sector, a rapidly growing and environmentally conscious industry. The leadership of David Smith and James Smith from Arthur Smith will be instrumental in navigating this exciting new frontier.

David Smith comments on the integration, “Joining with DAN Shipping opens a new chapter for us. It’s an opportunity to blend our expertise in offshore and renewables work with Dan Shipping’s longstanding reputation for service and John Good’s significant backing and areas of expertise in marketing, finance and HR.”

“This acquisition brings expansion in our Maritime Division both in the quality of people and business, but also a strategic move to enter the offshore and renewables markets. Welcoming five new team members from Arthur Smith, we’re not just growing in numbers but also in our capabilities and reach. I’m really pleased for Steve Pullen, Paul Haste, Mark Mullins, Kevin Parker who worked on the deal, and the wider team at DAN Shipping, for getting this one over the line,” says Adam Walsh, CEO of John Good Group.

“It’s also a bonus for the group, because we know how special family businesses are, and the completion of this process sees us welcome a fifth-generation business, into our sixth-generation family business. Family businesses, with all the heritage and values that go with them, are things to be cherished and I’m delighted to be welcoming the Smiths into our business and look forward to working with them to build a business for the future,” Walsch concludes.
