The acquisition further strengthens its strategic partnership with RSA and is in line with Nationwide’s recent moves to expand the range and scope of its offering across the UK, as the Company adapts to changing market conditions and sets out new goals for enhanced customer service levels.
As well as expanding Nationwide’s coverage, it will enable Nationwide and so RSA, to match its repair capacity more efficiently with demand further enhancing service and speed of repair.
Michael Wilmshurst, CEO of Nationwide, commented:

Bill Paton, UK and International Claims Director of RSA, commented:
“We have a very long standing and successful relationship with Nationwide and in a sector that is clearly changing and requires a different approach it is logical to extend this partnership further, working increasingly closer as the market develops.”
