Bluefin has bought Chelmsford-based commercial and personal lines broker R G Ford.

Following the acquisition all the staff will move into Bluefin’s Chelmsford office.

R G Ford Insurance Brokers managing director Giles Ford said: “Bluefin is a well respected broker in the market and this is an exciting opportunity for our business, staff and clients.

“Being part of Bluefin provides access to a strong support network and we look forward to joining the team in Chelmsford and working with them to develop the business further.”

Bluefin chief executive Mike Bruce added: “R G Ford has a fantastic and long standing reputation for its private client and commercial business.

“Its proximity to our existing Chelmsford office and its split of commercial and personal lines makes R G Ford an ideal fit for Bluefin and is very much in line with our strategy of acquiring top performing, specialist businesses.”
