MEMIC Opens Connecticut Office to Serve Southern New England

PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwire - October 10, 2007) - MEMIC Indemnity Company, a member of The MEMIC Group, has opened a new office in Glastonbury, CT, to help the company serve its expanding base of customers in Southern New England.

The company's office at 180 Glastonbury Boulevard will provide a base to serve customers and agents in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

"Southern New England offers wonderful growth opportunities for our company," said MEMIC President and CEO John T. Leonard. "We're finding that there's a real need for our services in this marketplace. Agents tell us that there isn't another workers' compensation carrier who services customers like we do."

The MEMIC Group, rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best, now offers coverage down the Eastern Seaboard from Maine to Virginia. The group's northeast focus, which includes offices in Portland, ME; Manchester, NH; and Albany, NY (in addition to the new Glastonbury office) has helped make it one of the top 50 writers of workers' compensation in the U.S.

The company has worked with agents in Connecticut for several years, establishing a base of customers. That success has spurred the company to establish a physical presence. To reach MEMIC's Glastonbury office, call (860) 656-9333. The office mailing address is 180 Glastonbury Blvd., Suite 380, Glastonbury, CT 06033.
