The Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) community of Linden will now benefit from the services offered by Assuria Life, Fire and General Insurance, as the company opened a branch in the mining town on Friday.A meet-and-greet and a ribbon-cutting exercise marked the official opening of the branch, situated at Republic Avenue, Mackenzie.Under its two registered companies (Life and General), Assuria will be offering services such as life, motor and fire insurance; bonds and contractors’ liability.Assuria General Manager Yogindra Arjune said the company was pleased and excited about extending its services to the Linden community and was optimistic that it would be successful. He noted that though the opening of the branch took a number of years, the timing was right.“The town is developing at a very rapid rate and we want to be here at the time when it is being developed. We want to play our part in developing Linden. So, we’re excited,” he stated.Arjune added that the company would be offering unique packages at affordable prices with easy payment options.“Contractors’ insurance, we’re very big in that and we want to help in every way possible to bring something unique to Linden…,” he said.Outgoing Linden Mayor Carwyn Holland, who was present at the ceremony, expressed gratitude to the insurance company for investing in the town.“It shows that investors are building their confidence in our town and we’re happy that they would have seen it fit to invest and come to this end and also to employ Lindeners; which is good for us. We want to see more Lindeners being employed.“Besides that, the offering of insurance in affordable packages, I think that is good for Linden,” Holland stated.He added that the services which are offered by Assuria would also be beneficial to local contractors looking to secure bonds and the like, as there has been some difficulty faced in this regard.The outgoing Mayor said Assuria has also made a promise to fulfil its social responsibility to the community.The company has so far employed three Lindeners. Assuria, which is a Suriname- based company, currently has five branches across Guyana, some six years after it was established in this country. It has two branches in Trinidad.
