Sydney, NS – Archway Insurance, one of Atlantic Canada’s largest insurance brokerages, is pleased to announce a new location in Cape Breton, MacCoy Insurance Brokers Ltd.
Effective July 1, 2017, MacCoy Insurance will become the 22nd location of Archway Insurance, which now covers all of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
“We are ready to serve both existing and new clients on Cape Breton Island through a local office in Sydney,” says Archway Insurance President Gina McFetridge. “We welcome Ritchie MacCoy to our management team, his employees, and MacCoy’s many business and personal clients to Archway Insurance.”
The MacCoy office will continue to operate as a new location of Archway with no major changes planned to existing roles and responsibilities for staff.
“I am extremely pleased that MacCoy Insurance Brokers Limited, a family owned business of 72 years, has joined Archway Insurance, also another family-run business,” says MacCoy Insurance President Ritchie MacCoy. “Together, we will continue to serve our clients throughout Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia.”
“Archway shares the similar values of commitment to employees, clients and the community as MacCoy Insurance. Our clients will continue to be serviced by the same Insurance Professionals at our same location.”
The acquisition of MacCoy brings the total number of Archway locations to 22 – covering all of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Over the past decade, Archway has purchased many brokerages across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and will continue to focus on growth through new business sales and brokerage purchases.
“As a broker, Archway is committed to offering choice and being advocates for our clients,” adds McFetridge. “We believe your best insurance is an insurance broker. Insurance brokers offer consumers four distinct advantages: choice, service, professionalism and on-your-side advocacy throughout the claims process.”
