January 30, 2023

VAN WERT, OHCentral Insurance, a leading property and casualty carrier headquartered in Van Wert, Ohio, today announced it will move its existing Central Ohio Technology Office in Dublin to a new 48,322 square-foot office space in Dublin’s Bridge Park neighborhood. The move comes as a result of Central’s focus on expertise growth, with plans to add approximately 60 new positions to the current team of 79 Dublin employees by the end of 2026.

"At Central Insurance, we invest in our people and the communities we serve. Central Ohio is a rapidly evolving business and tech hub, and moving to Bridge Park directly aligns with our vision for the future of the organization,” said Evan Purmort, CEO & President. "Our Van Wert headquarters has served as the cultural epicenter and heart of our company for nearly 150 years—and it will continue to do so. The new Bridge Park location is designed to accommodate the continued growth of our Dublin team. It provides a more functional, upgraded space with state-of-the-art amenities that expand our ability to innovate and deliver on the exceptional hospitality Central Insurance is known for.”

The more centralized Dublin location will pave the way to bring more jobs to the city, with a focus on top technology talent. The Bridge Park office, located at 6620 Mooney Street, spans an entire block and is situated within a mix of condos and retail stores.

Central Insurance partnered with Nelson Worldwide to personalize the space, and prominent mixed-use developer Crawford Hoying, to bring its vision to life. Construction for the space is already underway, with an official opening expected in winter 2023.

"We are proud that the employees of Central Insurance selected Bridge Park for the location of their expanded office due to its walkability to restaurants, shopping, and outdoor recreation,” said Bob Hoying, principal at Crawford Hoying, owner and developer of Bridge Park. "Central Insurance will be the largest office-space user at Bridge Park, and we look forward to its employees adding to the vibrancy of the community."
