Hendricks Insurance opens new offices

06-02-2013

An expanding insurance broking business, specialising in farming and estate policies will be opening a new office at United Auctions’ (UA’s) Stirling Agricultural Centre in January 2013.


Hendricks Insurance’s Agricultural & Estates Division has taken the last remaining 3,000 sq ft at Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers’ Stirling Agricultural Centre, as their new headquarters. And the business, which has a long‐established office in St Andrews, has a strategy in place to become Scotland’s premier rural insurance broker.


It is already planning a recruitment drive for an initial core staff of five employees – rising to 20 by 2014.  Key appointments will be announced in January 2013 when the Stirling office will be officially open for business.


Neil McLean, Group Joint MD of UA, said: 

“This is great news for Stirling and for our customers. We’re delighted that this ambitious firm is opening its new HQ at the Centre.  The addition of a rural insurance brokers perfectly complements the exceptional cluster of professional, agri‐related services the Centre offers, which includes CKD Galbraith, Ledingham Chalmers, Johnston Carmichael and Carrs Billington Agriculture. This was our vision for the facility right from the start so it’s really satisfying to see it develop with such success.”


Ritchie Sherret, Director of Hendricks Insurance said: 

“This is such a huge opportunity for us. There is a real sense of community at the Centre and I can’t think of any other business location in Scotland that offers such great potential with a footfall of over 22,000 on your doorstep every year. The opportunity is also recognised by two of the country’s largest agricultural underwriters with whom we are finalising arrangements that will see us launching perhaps the best all‐round policy on the market with very competitive premiums. We are expecting to make a real impact.”


Hendricks Insurance will take over the bespoke insurance service for the Stirling Bull Sales from February next year.
