Mark Menzies MP in visit to Fylde claims company


FYLDE MP Mark Menzies visited a major local employer to discuss developments in the transport sector and potential future growth for the company.

The Member of Parliament spoke to staff at Slater and Gordon Solutions, formerly A I Claims Solutions, on Blackpool Business Park and received a tour of the operation.

The Fylde coast motor services unit provides claims management and related services, managing motor claims from the initial incident through to final resolution. Its clients include some of the UK’s leading insurance companies as well as brokers, bodyshops and fleet companies across the country.

It employs around 500 people across three buildings on Sir Frank Whittle Way on the Fylde/Blackpool South border.

Following the visit, Mr Menzies, who also sits on the Transport Select Committee, said: “There are various companies like Slater and Gordon in Fylde which go about their business quietly while providing employment for large numbers of people locally.

“I was delighted to be asked to pay the company a visit and be shown around the different departments and hear about what they do.

“I, like most people, thought that when I contact my insurance company I am speaking directly to that business but, where an accident has occurred, in many cases you will be speaking to a specialist third party who can deal with your claim from start to finish.

“That can include offering legal advice, medical assistance and the provision of a replacement vehicle and companies like Slater and Gordon are set up to offer a full claims service.

“I was pleased to hear that the company has plans to continue to grow on the Fylde coast and provide even more jobs for local people.”
