The R Bruce Hill Agency, Ltd is a 3rd generation, family owned business which was formed in 1966 by Raymond Bruce Hill. Our beginnings started in Millburn, NJ on Essex Street and quickly outgrew our office. Over the next 4 years, as the agency experienced rapid growth, R. Bruce Hill moved into our present space at 335 Essex St Millburn, NJ.
In 1988, our agency had an exciting opportunity- we purchased from the State of New Jersey’s Dept. of Law and Public Safety The assets of Danford, Lewis & Darby. This was a referral from one of our insurance companies who wanted a through distribution of premiums and claims, protecting the public and companies. At this time we opened our first office in Point Pleasant, NJ which was where DLD was located. In 1992 we moved to our present location at 515 Arnold Ave, Point Pleasant Beach, which we still occupy today.
In 1997 we again were asked to help take over an insurance agency in stress located in Tuckerton,NJ. The owner of Mirth Insurance died an untimely death when his riding mower exploded while he was riding it. That we operated out of the Millers Mall in Tuckerton for a couple of years and then we consolidated their files into PPB. Lastly we purchased ABC Insurance in Point Pleasant in 2008. This was purchased from The executor of the estate. Those accounts were blended into Pt Pleasant Beach as well. In September of 2012 we made the decision to enter into a licensing agreement with ISU Insurance Agency Network. This strategic move enhanced our ability to deal with major stock companies for the placement of business in the states we do business in. It give us the competitive edge we feel we needed to better serve our clients.
