A hugely-successful specialist insurance broker has tracked down the perfect new home for its expanding business at Mamhilad Park, Pontypool.

Burgeoning insurance business Quote Detective outgrew its premises at Cwmbran’s Springboard Innovation Centre and has now taken 4,000 sq ft of space at the Johnsey Estates-owned business park.

Quote Detective currently employs 28 contact centre staff.

James Crawford, chief executive officer of Johnsey Estates, which owns Mamhilad Park Estate, said: “Technology concerns such as Quote Detective are at the top of our hit list in terms of businesses we are looking to attract to locate here.

“The park, with its unrivalled facilities, communications infrastructure and rural peaceful setting, is perfect for the type of work these high technology businesses do which is why we’re so pleased to welcome Quote Detective.”

Quote Detective chief executive David Harlow said: “Quote Detective is phone-based insurance business. We have plans to boost our staffing levels up to 45 to 50 by Easter 2018 and to 65 by this time next year.”

“The space that we have taken at Mamhilad Park Estate is ideal for our expanding needs. Johnsey Estates have been unbelievably accommodating in meeting our precise needs for which we are very grateful. We have a wing of a building here of approximately 4,000 sq ft and have the ability to expand onsite when the need arises.
