Allowing an even greater range of services.

New ownership for Melksham Insurers but no change for customers

November 2020

On 1st February 2020, local independent insurance brokers, Melksham Insurance, was acquired by Newbury-based Melville Burbage Insurance Services, enabling the firm to offer an even greater range of services and capabilities, while retaining its name, location and staff, ensuring no change for customers.
Well-known as the friendly, local face of insurance, with client relationships going back many years, Melksham Insurance was keen to maintain its local profile within the Wiltshire market town of Melksham, while providing clients with an even greater range of services, as a result of its new ownership.
Sharing a mutual commitment to customer service, professionalism and genuine good value, Melville Burbage was the ideal new owner, an independent brokerage established in 1960, with a reputation for providing the highest levels of expertise and customer care, with particular specialism in the fields of construction, technology & life science and social welfare.
The new ownership provides Melksham Insurance with a raft of new capabilities, alongside greater reach and buying power, offering customers an exceptional range of benefits, while continuing to deliver the local, friendly service they have come to expect. In fact, customers will be hard pushed to see a difference when visiting, as staff, premises and identity remain the same. The team has always focused on providing the highest levels of personal service, placing customers at the heart of everything they do, and that continues to be the case.

Over the years, Melksham has developed relationships with a wide range of personal and commercial insurers, including Lloyds of London, enabling the team to provide solutions tailored to customers’ specific requirements and ensure that they are adequately protected, and this meshes perfectly with Melville Burbage’s customer offering and core values.

Under Melville Burbage’s ownership, Melksham continues to enjoy membership of Willis Towers Watson Networks, a network that places over £500m of insurance premium in the UK, giving them significant influence and leverage, and enabling them to pass on keen benefits to customers in terms of cover and price.
