He joined his father's business in 1879 and expanded the same by establishing agency links at London, Paris, Marseilles, Geneva, Trieste, Amsterdam, Hamburg, New York and Colombo.

He was popularly known as 'the Maker of Modern Aden' and his family built an agiary and a dokhma at Aden and an agiary at Zanzibar and at Lonavala.

He had the honour of presenting on behalf of the residents of Aden and address to His Majestic King George V in 1911.

Sir Hormusjee represented the Aden Chamber of Commerce at the Fifth International Congress held at Boston in 1911 and he was a Trustee of Aden Port. He was a Vice Consul for Spain in 1891 and Consul for Portugal and Austria in Aden.

Sir Hormusjee was known as a Captain of Industry and was on the Board of several mills. He was a philanthropist having firm faith in our religion, its traditions and customs.

In appreciation of his services, the Bombay Municipal Corporation named a road as Sir Hormusjee Adenwalla Road in Dadar Parsee Colony. He passed away at the age of 82 on 1' August, 1939.
