East-Anglia-based Alan Boswell Group has reported further expansion this month, following the launch of its new business, Alan Boswell Risk Management.
The move brings three new faces to the group and enhances the range of business insurance services available to clients, helping them to comply with the law and avoid disruption to their business.
Two new engineering surveyors, Gary Murphy and Terry Hammond, and a risk management administrator, Shannon Waters, join risk management advisers John Neil and Gavin Dearsley, to provide a comprehensive suite of services.
With a wealth of experience across a range of industries, Terry and Gary have significant mechanical knowledge and are qualified to carry out essential engineering inspections. Both are able to perform Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER), PSSR and LEV statutory inspections, as well as offer general advice and inspections under The Provision of Use and Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).
By using one company to advise on insurance, provide risk management advice and carry out inspections, businesses can rely on Alan Boswell Group to coordinate the whole process.
Says Risk Management Adviser John Neil: “Routine engineering inspections are vital to minimising the risks our clients may face. While these are a legal requirement, they also keep the working environment safe and reduce the chances of disruption, thereby reducing their chances of an insurance claim. Our services are already proving popular and we are currently in the process of recruiting a third risk management adviser to meet with demand!”
Group MD Chris Gibbs comments: “We’re always looking to enhance the range of services available to our clients. As such, the expansion of our Risk Management business to include engineering inspection was a natural move. Now our clients don’t need to juggle different companies for insurance, risk management and inspections – they can get a complete package from us, safe in the knowledge they’ll receive the same quality service they’d expect from any part of the Alan Boswell Group.”
The expansion follows the group’s acquisition of Cambridge-based S-Tech Insurance Services Ltd in November last year, bringing the company’s total headcount to in excess of 300 people.
