About Us - Adm Londis Logo

  • In 1954, a co-operative society was founded by a group of 100 grocers. It was called Allied Dublin Merchants Ltd (ADM Ltd) . 1970 saw ADM Londis Ltd acquire the use of the Londis Franchise for Ireland and launched 33 of its existing stores under the Londis Franchise.
  • ADM Londis Ltd opened a Distribution Warehouse in Johnstown, Naas, Co. Kildare in 1975, and changed their name to Allied Distributive Merchants Ltd (to tie in with the expansion outside the Dublin area)
  • In 1995, ADM Londis Ltd purchased the Londis name exclusively for the entire 32 counties and celebrated its 25th Anniversary in Ireland.  ADM Londis Ltd formed an association with Tedcastles Ltd to promote Londis TOP SHOP as the convenience end for forecourts and stores of less than 2,000 sq. ft in 1998.
  • 2003 saw the amalgamation of ADM Londis and Londis Topshop to become an increasingly powerful force in the Irish Retail Market, with a combined total of nearly 300 stores.
  • In October of 2004, ADM Londis announced a major change in its corporate structure from a co-operative to an unlisted plc. The plc initiative is a unique ADM Londis proposition to retailers within the symbol group arena in Ireland.
