Bristol broker Fradette/Carlson Insurance Agency has been acquired by Rhode Island's Starkweather & Shepley Insurance Brokerage Inc., officials say.
Starkweather said Monday the Fradette agency will retain its name but operate as a Starkweather division in southern New England. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Fradette provides personal and commercial insurance for manufacturing, auto repair, residential condominiums, restaurants, contractors, retailers, and wholesalers.
Greg Fradette Sr. will oversee the office as president, with Michael Carlson is vice president.
Based in East Providence, where Starkweather's main office is located, it also has three offices in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., and one each in Westwood, Mass., and East Greenwich and Westerly, R.I.
