I wanted to take this quick opportunity to thank the whole team at Balens for all they have done for AIT and ABT as companies, but perhaps more importantly to me. The trust, respect and loyalty you have always treated me with. I have dealt with Balens since 2004 and a lot has changed in the last seven years....not least the AIT and ABT brands have grown and now look after over 9,000 individual clients. Clearly, a great insurance package was required first and foremost, but the growth was significantly assisted due to the support and guidance given by David.....I still remember the first trip David and I did, lecturing to colleges back in 2005 and driving the whole length of Ireland to show our support to training and education - good times! Over the last three years, Joe and Josh have helped me in the same ethical, moralistic way the business was founded on and I am sure David must be very proud of the level of expertise and service his sons provide. Brokers will always come and go, to a degree so will insurers and I have dealt with a lot over the years and can assure you, your level of service is second to none.There is no doubt in my mind that without the products, services and support of Balens my brands would not be where they are today and I have a tremendous amount to thank you for. In today's, FMCG world, we rarely take the time to offer thanks to those who helped us at the beginning, let along supported us all the way through ....so, please accept this brief letter as my way of saying 'thanks'!

Dave Horton, AIT Director (2011)
