NFP has announced its acquisition of SeaChange Limited, a health and safety consultancy headquartered in Naas, County Kildare.
It represents a major expansion for the broker’s European health and safety services, aiming to enrich solutions for clients across Ireland, the UK, and mainland Europe. The acquisition transaction was completed, effective from October 1.
Established in 2005 by Ger Cummins as a family-operated enterprise, SeaChange’s has a workforce of 25 employees. It collaborates with 300 clients spanning Ireland, Europe, and the United States.
“Acquiring SeaChange provides an exciting opportunity to support our clients in new ways, offering them access to an in-house health and safety consultancy as another way to mitigate overall business risk. This strategic move gives NFP another competitive edge and an exciting progression into health and safety consulting in Ireland,” NFP Europe president Matt Pawley (pictured above, right) said.
“Joining NFP represents a new era for SeaChange and a very proud moment for our business and family. NFP has a very successful business in Ireland, and we believe this next step will offer NFP and SeaChange clients a wider breadth of corporate services to help manage risk and support a more competitive insurance offering. I look forward to leading our company on the next chapter of its business journey,” SeaChange CEO Dr Paul Cummins (pictured above, left) said.
This latest swoop follows another made by NFP recently as the broker announced its acquisition of West Midlands-based broker Resolute Insurance Services in a move to expand its commercial insurance offerings.
