The latest deals news from GRP/County Group;

GRP’s County Group (County) has acquired Business Insurance Specialists (BIS), who are based in Llandudno. The commercial broker specialises in insurance for the motor trade and construction.

He said that all staff including the directors will continue with the business and the office in Llandudno will remain open for business.

Commenting on the deal, Roger Stevens said: “I’m a strong admirer of County Group and feel confident that it will prove to be the best possible custodian for our business, our people and our clients. We fully intend to take advantage of the additional firepower provided by County and GRP to enhance the products and services we provide our clients and achieve substantial further growth for the business under new ownership.”

Alastair Christopherson said that he remained keen to talk to vendors who are considering their exit options or looking to accelerate their growth as part of a larger group.

He noted: “We offer a menu of options to vendors, and as our acquisition track record underlines, we provide an outstanding home for excellent brokerages in the North West and Wales.”

The consideration is undisclosed.
