FBinsure Acquires Henry L. Newbury Insurance Agency

TAUNTON, MA – FBinsure has announced that as of January, it has acquired Henry L. Newbury Insurance Agency (Newbury Insurance Agency), an independent insurance agency located off Route 152 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.  President of Newbury Insurance Agency, Jim Newbury, and brother John, will maintain their roles within the agency throughout the process to ensure a smooth transition to the FBinsure brand for the agency’s 1,400 clients.

“Providing top-notch personal service and guidance to our valued clients has driven our success in North Attleboro. Finding those same qualities in the team at FBinsure, along with increased technological capabilities and an expanding list of insurance companies, assured my brother and I that this move would bring an immense amount of value to our clients,” said Jim Newbury. Long time employees of Newbury Insurance Agency, Lynne Engel-Homes, Pam Folan, Barbara Stanford, and Linda Kozlowski, will retain their active roles with FBinsure’s growing team. Changes to the agency will be minor, mainly aimed at updating technology and providing greater access to new companies.

Russ Martorana, President of FBinsure said, “We are thrilled Jim and John Newbury have chosen to join FBinsure as their retirement partners. This decision further strengthens both our agencies and we expect clients will feel the lasting positive impact in their future experiences here.”

This serves as the second of two acquisitions for FBinsure, who acquired Gramlich Insurance Agency of New Bedford late last year. With the addition of Henry L. Newbury Insurance Agency, FBinsure can now count eight total locations throughout Bristol and Plymouth Counties, including their offices in Taunton, Attleboro, Middleboro, Dighton, Rehoboth, East Freetown, New Bedford and now North Attleboro.
