About Us

Our Origin - 1929

A.R. Brassington Ltd was originally founded by Arthur Rochelle Brassington. The company began operating as an Insurance Brokerage in 1929 offering personal and corporate clients a variety of non-life insurance products to the Irish Market. The first office was located at No. 14 Fleet Street, Dublin 2.

Our Growth - 1988

In 1988, Brassingtons was acquired by Cathal O’Brien, Managing Director of All Risk Insurance Ltd.

By the late 1980’s Brassingtons introduced Creditor Insurance to the Irish market. Subsequently Brassingtons became the largest provider of this class of business to lending institutions in Ireland.

Towards the end of 1990 both All Risk Insurances Ltd and Brassingtons were fully amalgamated under the A.R Brassington & Co. Ltd banner. This synergy enabled A.R Brassington & Co. Ltd to develop the retail side while at the same time facilitating the growing wholesale activities of the company.

‘We at Avocado Technology have been using Brassingtons for more than 4 years now. We now have our fleet insurance and Public Liability /Employer Liability policy with them. Each renewal we shop around and have consistently found Brassingtons to be very competitively priced. That coupled with their friendly, helpful and flexible staff we foresee that our insurance needs will be met by Brassingtons as our company continues to grow in the future’

All the staff in Brassingtons are always very helpful and quick to respond to any queries we have. When we required a way to finance our insurance bills, Brassingtons arranged it for us, making life very easy for us! If a member of staff was absent for any reason we found that another member was willing to help out if they could. We have been so pleased with Brassingtons over the years that we suggested it to our employees, since then, several members of our company have taken out home, travel and personal motor policies.
