A leading insurance broker which serves 140,000 customers from the North West has expanded its operations into Clipper House in Sale following a merger last year.

The Bollington Wilson Group has moved into the high quality office facility, owned by Orbit Developments, relocating all staff from its corporate insurance office in Altrincham, as well as some departments from existing offices in Macclesfield.

It will become home to more than 200 of its 450 employees, with plans to welcome up to 100 new staff members as the business continues to grow. The firm will also continue to operate from its Macclesfield and Liverpool locations.

Clipper House is well suited as a HQ building, offering c 27,400 sq ft of space arranged over ground and three upper floors.

The building is located immediately adjacent to Junction 7 of the M60 motorway and is set within a self-contained secure site benefiting from ample on-site car parking provision and landscaped grounds.

CEO of Bollington Wilson Group Paul Moors, said: “Bollington has had several years of solid growth expanding on our core areas of corporate insurance, motor trade and care insurance, into a specialist niche and affinity insurance broker.

“Building on this we wanted to expand our offering and increase our market share, which resulted in the merged operations with Wilsons Insurance Group.

“We are now in an enviable position of having a diverse, successful base from where we can grow organically and through acquisition. To accommodate this, we have had to reassess our office spaces and Clipper House was an ideal new additional location for us.

“Our sales teams across all product lines can now work under one roof and we’ve been able to bring two diverse business cultures together as we all work towards our unified vision.

“Employee engagement and wellbeing is a big focus for us as we continue to expand, and the office move has allowed us to continue with this. We’ve had a state-of-the-art gym built into the new building and created shared office space that benefits how teams work together.”

The new group controls premiums in excess of £150,000,000 and is going through a period of unprecedented growth, which it will now continue from Clipper House. Rugby union star and commercial director at Sale Sharks Mark Cueto officially opened the new HQ.

Dean Richards, Leasing Director at Orbit Developments, commented:  “Clipper House is one of our flagship properties and has clearly met all of the needs of the newly-created Bollington Wilson Group at an exciting stage of growth and development for them. It is a unique property with excellent transport links and local amenities – and space for further expansion. We wish Paul and his team every success.”
