Facility in Woodbridge, New Jersey, will house more than 650 employees
Woodbridge, N.J. – March 18, 2019 – Plymouth Rock Assurance, a leading auto and home insurance provider in the Northeast, will on March 20 celebrate the grand opening of its new corporate headquarters, a Mack-Cali building, located at 581 Main Street, Woodbridge, New Jersey.
Plymouth Rock will welcome special guests including Assemblyman John McKeon, chair of the Assembly Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee; Marlene Caride, Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance; John McCormac, Mayor of Woodbridge Township, and others.
More than 650 Plymouth Rock employees have moved into the new space from the company’s former Red Bank and Berkeley Heights offices, with the final group of employees relocating on March 18.
“Plymouth Rock’s next phase of growth brings a number of exciting changes to our organization,” said Gerry Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Plymouth Rock Management Company of New Jersey. “An important change is the centralization of our New Jersey operations to this beautiful modernized space in Woodbridge. The move helps us improve organizational effectiveness, allows us to compete for top talent in the New York metropolitan area, and makes our location more attractive to employees with easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway along with greater accessibility to mass transit.”
Located in New Jersey’s oldest township and in one of the state’s most active business corridors, the eight-story building, which features Plymouth Rock signage on three sides, provides high visibility from the Turnpike, is located just 20 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport, and is served by the Metropark and Woodbridge rail stations and New Jersey Transit bus service.
The new location features upgrades to the entryway and lobby, a new fitness center, a full-service café, and the addition of several forward-thinking technological features.
“We remain deeply committed to the state of New Jersey,” said Wilson. “It is also our hope that this new headquarters will serve as a launching pad for continued growth in New Jersey as well as our expanded operations into neighboring states. We’re very excited for the opportunities it will open up for the company.”
