The General Workers Union’s insurance agency Untours Insurance Agents (UIA) has announced it will relocate its offices to the A3 Towers in Marsa.

For over 45 years, the agency was located at the union’s headquarters in Valletta.

“There were a number of compelling reasons which steered us to change our corporate identity. Following an in-depth evaluation of the company’s strategy back in 2013, the directors felt that it was the right time for a strategy reformulation. The result of this exercise is now taking us in this exciting, new direction. We feel that the new brand image adequately reflects our enhanced standards of service and our vision for the future,” UIA chief executive Ivan Buttigieg said.

“Moving to a more central location will enable us to efficiently respond to the growing demand for our services. We are evolving and constantly improving our services to better cater for our customers’ needs and to offer the heightened protection and peace of mind that our clients are looking for.”

The GWU’s subsidiary Paola Estates purchased four levels of the A3 Towers in Marsa for some €1.74 million in 2012.

Paola Estates are the preferred bidders in the expression of interest Transport Malta issued for the rental of new office space.

The A3 Towers were constructed by the Montebello brothers’ JPM Bros, the company that had also acquired the defunct Jerma Palace Hotel in Marsascala, as well as having developed the Mistra Heights complex in Xemxija before selling off their interest.

The government is also expected to open a branch of its energy and water billing company ARMS, at the General Workers Union’s headquarters on Old Bakery Street.
