Insurance experts Towergate have demonstrated their commitment to growth in Kent with a new lease and a move into Connect 38 in the centre of Ashford. The national insurance broker with 60 offices across the UK has taken on 2,500 square feet in the new commercial block as part of its plans for development in 2019 and beyond.
The team, formerly based in Faversham, will continue to offer insurance and risk solutions to businesses across the county but with an established office in Sevenoaks, the move is very much about supporting business owners in the east of the county.
David Armstrong, Area Managing Director said : “Whilst modern technology shortens communication chains, we still believe in the value of local service and face to face advice. The move into Ashford gives us a fresh start whilst maintaining our presence on both sides of the county.”
A Kent Invicta Chamber Patron, the insurance adviser has 70 staff across the county looking after businesses from starts ups through to multi-nationals.
“There is a lot we can do for both small and large businesses across the county. The move and the great new location gives us a fantastic opportunity to further engage in the Ashford and East Kent business community. Whilst we will be reaching out to the business owners around us, hopefully one or two will take the opportunity to come and visit us. We’ll have the kettle on.”
