Glasgow boost for Central Insurance

CENTRAL Insurance, the Aberdeen-based brokerage, yesterday hailed the success of its Glasgow office after writing more than £2 million-worth of premiums so far this year.

The haul puts Central's west coast operation on course to beat last year's total of 2.5m, amassed from a standing start after its 1.2m office opened in March. The firm has added more than 80 clients, compared with 100 in 2010.
