Our company

Crombie Lockwood has been helping New Zealanders protect what's important for over 40 years. From our humble beginnings in Napier in 1978, we’ve proudly built up a network from Invercargill to Kaitaia.

Today we are a team of around 850 people in 27 local offices. We place premiums in excess of $800 million on behalf of over 100,000 customers.

In 2014 we joined Gallagher, the world’s fourth largest insurance broker. This international backing combined with our national resources enables us to negotiate the best benefits, conditions and premiums for our clients.

We remain true to the Kiwi values we're built on, and today Crombie Lockwood is still run by two of its founders, Steve Lockwood and Carl O'Shea.

Our commitment to protecting New Zealanders extends to our partnership with Kiwis for kiwi and sponsorship of the Crombie Lockwood Kiwi Burrow.
