HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Freeway Insurance, a division of Confie, the largest independent personal lines agency and broker in the U.S., today announced it had acquired AutoPartners Insurance Agency, Inc, under the Freeway Insurance brand.
As part of the acquisition, Freeway Insurance will retain AutoPartners Insurance employees, as well as maintain operations at all 17 AutoPartners Insurance retail locations across the state, increasing the company’s physical presence to more than 190+ retail locations throughout Texas and over 520 nationwide.
“For more than two decades, residents of rural Texas have relied on AutoPartners Insurance for their automotive insurance needs, and we look forward to carrying on that legacy,” said Chad Maxwell, Senior Vice President and Head of M&A for Confie. “Texas has long been a priority market for Freeway Insurance and this acquisition furthers our commitment to the people of this great state.”
Launched in 1989, AutoPartners Insurance prioritizes the delivery of auto insurance to Texas residents living outside traditional big city markets. This approach to ensuring everyone has access to affordable and quality insurance – in-person, online and over the phone – will remain a priority as AutoPartners joins the Freeway Insurance family.
“Our customers have always been our first priority, which is why we’re excited to join forces with Freeway Insurance to provide even greater access to exceptional insurance products across Texas,” said Dennis Walsh, CEO. “Teaming up with Freeway Insurance, a company that shares our passion and vision, allows our team to scale more quickly, providing greater access and service to our customers.”
“Dennis and his team have built an exceptional company that fits perfectly with our company during a period of aggressive growth,” said Cesar Soriano, CEO of Confie. “We plan to continue expansion in Texas and across the country through organic growth, franchising, and strategic mergers and acquisitions, and we look forward to having the AutoPartners Insurance team alongside us when we do.”
