Jobs and investment at top Black Country firm in national expansion

Thursday, June 29 2017

A leading Black Country firm of insurance brokers is taking on more staff and launching a new northern branch as part of a national expansion plan.

Dudley-based Gravity Risk Services is launching a branch of the company in Bradford to take its award-winning insurance services to a wider audience.

The company, based in Priory Road, has been steadily growing for five years and over the past six months has taken on four new staff to bolster specific areas of the business.

The new Bradford branch, in Thornbury Road, will provide bespoke business-to-business insurance packages to firms in the north, after bosses attracted senior personnel from competitors.

The company has also taken on extra staff to oversee a new Orbit Claims Service arm of the business which will provide a specialist claims service for large losses. This service will be exclusive to Gravity clients providing hands on support to clients preparing sizeable loss claims and ensuring the clients interests are protected.

Bosses say the move could triple the number of clients the company could provide its specialist insurance services to.

Dale Collett, director at Gravity Risk Services, said:

We’re excited about the Bradford branch because that will allow us to tap into new clients in the north using proven, experienced and qualified advisors.

Orbit Claims will provide an exclusive additional service which is important to us in continuing to expand our services in order to further assist our clients.

Gravity Risk Services started life in a garage five years ago but has since won and been shortlisted in regional awards.

Over the past six months the number of people employed at the firm has gone from 11 to 15 with more jobs predicted. In 2014 the business won Broker of the Year in the prestigious West Midlands Insurance Institutes Awards, and named a finalist the following year.
