AbbeyAutoline acquires Downs Insurance

AbbeyAutoline has acquired Down Insurances as part of its expansion plan to strengthen its position as Northern Ireland’s largest insurance broker. It is the second acquisition by the firm within a week, following the purchase of Lisnaskea-based Martin Carey Insurance’s customer book of business.

Down Insurance, a family-owned brokerage, based in Downpatrick, Co. Down, was established in 1983 by Michael Kearney and specialises in commercial insurance lines, as well as a range of personal and medical insurance products.

Julie Gibbons, managing director of AbbeyAutoline, said: “We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Down Insurances’ customer book of business. This acquisition, along with the recent addition of Martin Carey Insurance, significantly strengthens our presence in the Northern Ireland marketplace and reinforces our commitment to delivering exceptional service and value to our growing customer base.”

Jonathan Kearney, managing director of Down Insurances, added: “Joining forces with AbbeyAutoline is a positive move for our customers and our dedicated team of sales advisors. This acquisition ensures our clients will continue to enjoy the exceptional service they’ve come to know, now with the added benefit of AbbeyAutoline’s extensive range of Personal and Commercial insurance products from the world’s leading insurers.

“Throughout this transition, we will ensure that all existing policies and payment arrangements remain unaffected, maintaining the highest standards of service our clients expect.”
