Wrightsure Insurance Group – one of the largest privately-owned insurance brokers in the UK – has opened a new office in Orbit Development’s Regent House in Stockport town centre.
The new office will complement a well-established northern presence for Wrightsure, who already have offices in Liverpool and Leeds.
The opening of the Stockport office is to provide a wider service offer across the north west.
Wrightsure serves thousands of clients throughout the UK with specialist schemes across many sectors including technology, haulage and passenger transport sectors.
Led by director Nigel Bailey, the new office is already attracting business from Stockport and the wider GM area, and the team has grown with four new members of staff.
Nigel said: “We opted for Stockport mainly to help us attract quality employees in the future but to also have access to the M60 corridor.
“There is no doubt that the town is on the up. It always had good transport links by bus and train, but we have been very impressed with the other investments going on to improve the environment around the office.”
Rhys Owen, Leasing Director for Orbit Developments, added: “The level of investment being made into improving Stockport town centre is clearly having a positive impact already and business leaders can see the benefits of opening an office here – whether it be for employee satisfaction, ease of recruitment or fantastic transport connectivity options.”
“With major new developments such as the Redrock leisure and retail scheme aiming to be open and trading by late 2017 and bringing a host of new names including Pizza Express, Zizzi and Gourmet Burger Kitchen, we look forward to what the future will bring for Stockport.”
