Bob Davies started the business on his own in 1968. Back then the insurance industry was very different, he made a success of it through hard work and long hours, building the business up from scratch. The emphasis of the business was to provide a friendly and personal service to all of his clients whilst searching the market for the best deal available.
Offices were established on Comberton Hill providing a base to service the local community. As word spread of the service being provided and the competitive rates being offered the business grew dramatically.
Bob Davies aided by Lynn Newey looked after the needs of the personal motorist; new business, alterations and claims for private car, commercial vehicle and fleet. From upstairs Bill Mason catered for the needs of the non- motorist, back in those days the company was involved with mortgages, investments and life insurance as well as commercial insurance.
Over the years the staff have increased mainly by utilising various family members. Matt Smith joined the business from school, he is still with Bob some 25 years later.
Matt Henderson joined the business in 2008 taking over from Bill Mason in the commercial department as Bill had reached retirement age. Matt has grown the commercial business considerably since then and is still looking to increase the size of the business whilst keeping the original ethos of providing a friendly and personal service.
Throughout the years the business has had many challenges such as the direct writers arriving on the scene in the 1990’s to the comparison websites we know today. Insurance has also become regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. The company has had to try to keep up to date with technology and ensure we have the rates and knowledge to continue to compete.
Bob Davies is still actively involved with the day to day running of the business today some 50 years later.
