SanBuck Insurance announced this week its acquisition of the property and casualty accounts from Andalusia’s South Central Agency, effective Jan. 1, 2012.

SanBuck Insurance currently operates offices in Enterprise and Troy. Company president Denny Sanford said that the addition of the Andalusia office will allow the company to truly become a south central Alabama insurance agency.

Sanford said he expects to announce a new location for the Andalusia office in the near future.

“We have many friends and customers in the Covington County and Andalusia area, and we are excited to be the first independent agency with offices located in Covington, Coffee and Pike counties,” he said. “This move will bring more insurance markets to the area to give our Covington County customers more choices when searching for commercial, personal, farm, life and health insurance.”

Josh Carnley will be the lead agent in Andalusia with Sanford, John Buck, Joe Brabham, Jeremy Henderson and Charlie Brown working are here as well.

Melissa King, Tammy Sasser and Aurenda Barefoot will continue to assist local customers.

Carnley said SanBuck’s affiliations will give customers more options. The company represents AutoOwners, Hartford, Travers, Union Standard, Chubb, and State Auto insurances.
