Rowett expands its South West offering with Curwins acquisition

Cornwall-based Rowett Insurance Broking has completed the acquisition of Curwins Insurance Services.

Curwins, based in Plymstock, has been providing independent insurance services to the people of Plymouth and the surrounding areas for over 18 years. 

Following completion of the deal, Rowett managing director Glyn Rowett promised the change in ownership would be seamless and that the policies of Curwins clients would continue to be administered from the premises in Dean Cross Road.

Paul Hodges and Lisa Evans will also join the Rowett staff from Curwins.

The present Rowett insurance office in Crownhill will close and the existing staff will join Hodges and Evans in Plymstock.

Rowett said: “We look forward to welcoming staff and customers of Curwins. This purchase reinforces our presence in Devon.”

“Exciting time”

Rowett has been trading for more than 30 years and already has offices in St Austell and Plymouth. This deal takes GWP up to £6m.

It provides both personal and commercial insurances online as well as through its offices.

Rowett added: “Whilst this is a most exciting time for us, the expansion reflects that the business continues to go from strength to strength.

“We look forward to welcoming the existing Curwins clientele and wish to emphasise to all of our customers, old and new, that our level of service will not be affected and will continue to operate at the highest standard.”
