Abbey Insurance and Autoline Insurance have joined forces to become AbbeyAutoline Insurance and as a result, are now the biggest insurance broking business in Northern Ireland.
Julie Gibbons, a very well-known figure within the business community in the Greater Newry Area, is now the Managing Director of the newly combined insurance broking business, which has become the biggest insurance broker in NI.
AbbeyAutoline now has 22 branches province wide and employs a combined total of 470 staff.
Earlier in the year, all of the staff from the former Abbey Insurance branch in Newry City, relocated to Autoline HQ at Ashtree Enterprise Park, Newry City which has just been rebranded as AbbeyAutoline.
Julie Gibbons, Managing Director of AbbeyAutoline and Vice President of Newry Chamber said:
“This is one of the most significant moves in the local insurance industry in decades. As a combined business, we are excited to bring AbbeyAutoline customers in Newry, South Down and across Northern Ireland, a broader range of products.”
“As AbbeyAutoline, while we will be bigger, we will remain focused on delivering the same trusted, expert, personal customer care that has grown our two businesses for almost five decades.”
All current policy holders can be assured that their existing policies are unaffected by the move.
