December 6, 2019, OWEN SOUND, ON
Nicol Insurance Inc., with offices in Owen Sound, Wiarton, Port Elgin, Kincardine and Flesherton is pleased to announce that they have purchased Landry Mellow Insurance of Orangeville and James Washington Insurance of Mississauga.
Tim Nicol, CEO Nicol Insurance Inc., said, “We’re very excited to bring the Landry & Mellow group into the Nicol family. Their history of building strong customer relationships and their commitment to the surrounding Orangeville and Mississauga communities made Landry & Mellow a natural fit for us. With this acquisition, Nicol Insurance moves closer to our vision of being an industry leader as both a community-minded and client-centric business.”
While steps to align the internal systems and operations will begin immediately, it will not affect current clients of Landry Mellow or James Washington as they will continue to operate under their respective names until they can be seamlessly merged into the Nicol Insurance brand.
Todd Landry of Landry Mellow said, “We are thrilled for what this means for our staff and clients. With a strong focus on customer service, Nicol Insurance shares many of the same core values that have helped make Landry Mellow Insurance a successful small-town brokerage for the last 40 years. Nicol Insurance will also provide us with more products and expertise to help take the brokerage into the future.”
At this time, there are no plans to make any staffing changes as the merging of the two companies will result in very little overlap of responsibilities.
