£45 million deal revealed

A £45 million deal has been revealed by one of Gloucestershire's biggest private employers.

The deal by the business, which employs 650 staff at its base at Gloucester Business Park in Brockworth, is for five years.

Ageas Insurance, the company in question, has signed the agreement with Darwin Clayton, one of the longest established independent insurance brokers in the UK.

It is said to "build on an existing six-year partnership with Darwin Clayton, delivering specialist cover across a number of trade sectors including interior contractors, security, cleaning, facilities management and recruitment".

Ant Middle, Ageas's chief customer officer, said: "Next year Darwin Clayton celebrates its centenary and this longevity is due in no small part to their customer-centric ethos.

"They truly understand their customers' needs and we're delighted that they recognise our excellent products and customer focus and look forward to continuing our successful partnership for another five years."

Simon Henderson, from Darwin Clayton, said: "Darwin Clayton has an industry-wide reputation as an expert in the provision of our specialist products for both retail and wholesale distribution.

"Over the last six years we've had a partner in Ageas who works closely with us to enhance that reputation and supports us with bespoke solutions for our customers. I'm delighted that we've signed an agreement for another five years.

Ageas strengthened its partnership with Darwin Clayton in 2017 with the introduction of 'Darwinsure' a bespoke online product for the small business sector, offering Ageas products online to the commercial sector.
