R K Harrison Holdings, parent of brokers R K Harrison Insurance has today announced it has acquired the business and assets of IRM in a move that will see them control and operate the leading IRC Europe brand, in a move designed to expand its insurance operation both in terms of geographic reach and physical size.

IRC Europe provide brokering services for trade creditors, working with clients in a consultative process to determine the optimal level and stytle of cover to clients throughout the Eurozone primarily. The acquisition by RKHH will see the company expand its speciality service lines, along with its in house capabilities.

Speaking today on the move, chief executive of R K Harrison Holdings Paul Bridgwater suggested that the company has made an excellent acquisition in IRC, largely down to the subsidiary’s specialist service provision and raw technical expertise in a diversified insurance market portfolio.

It is thought that following the move IRC Europe will retain its current structure and branding, with a view to building on the success of the company at present and the strong reputation the enjoy within the market.
