Erimus Group Limited (Erimus) is today being rebranded to Gallagher. Erimus is a Stockton-on-Tees based insurance broker, employing circa 40 people, which became part of Gallagher when it was acquired in June 2022.

Founded in 1986, the firm has around 2,500 commercial clients predominantly in the North East region, with clients ranging from large corporates to SMEs. The area is beneficiating from a number of local development programmes including Teesworks, the UK’s largest Freeport, which will be home to manufacturing and renewable energy hubs, as well as industrial and commercial spaces.

Clients will continue to be supported with insurance and risk management services by the existing team that understand their business, whilst additionally benefiting from Gallagher’s wealth of industry knowledge and insight from its 7000 strong team across the UK.

Since becoming part of Gallagher last year, Erimus has continued to grow its team through new hires including taking on a number of apprenticeships, with growth and recruitment continuing to be key focuses for the business.

Commenting on the rebrand, Peter Matthews, Managing Director of the North, Gallagher’s UK Retail Division said: “We are very pleased to reach this key milestone and have Erimus operating under the Gallagher brand. We acquired Erimus last year as the business was a great fit for us and provided an opportunity to expand our team in the North East.

“Clients can be assured that their existing team remains in place and they will continue to receive the same high-quality service from the individuals they know that understand their business and can provide insurance and risk management advice.”
