US-based Northeast Bank Insurance Group has purchased Hyler Agency, a provider of property and casualty insurance.

Luann Hyler, owner of Hyler Agency, said: While our sales beliefs remain the same, the insurance industry is changing quickly. Our commitment to consistent superior customer service is strengthened by joining Northeast Bank Insurance Group. We now have the opportunity to better serve our clients with increased access to carriers for better pricing, and more importantly, availability of additional services like health & life insurance and financial planning to meet their expectations.

Craig Sargent, president of Northeast Bank Insurance Group, added: Luann and Buddy have developed a strong presence in Thomaston and the surrounding marketplace. They will continue to operate the agency under its existing name. In addition, we’ll be looking to expand the operation by adding two new positions immediately.
