On the 26th September 1995, Ashburnham Insurance Services Limited was formed following a management takeover of the Southend-on-Sea branch of a well established nationwide insurance brokerage called Robert A Rushtons.
The new owners, who still remain the same today, had the first task of naming the company. After much deliberation (a cup of coffee while staring out the window) the road sign of the road running next to the office, namely Ashburnham Road, gave some much need inspiration and thus the name was decided.
So 14 years may not be a typical landmark in age but it is certainly worth noting the considerable growth and change in what is relatively a short amount of time. The number of staff has more than doubled and the office moved across Ashburnham Road to a much larger premises to cater for the growing needs.
The local broker, face to face approach is still a part of the business but online trading has seen the company branch out to the whole world now and can now boast customers as far away as Australia. If you would like to know more about who Ashburnham Insurance are then visit the website.
