Guelph, Ont., September 6, 2017 – Halwell Mutual Insurance Company officially opened its new 14,500 square foot head office today, located in the Hanlon Creek Business Park.

“I want to thank Halwell for staying local and for choosing to continue their growth in Guelph,” says Mayor Cam Guthrie. “I am thrilled to be cutting the ribbon on another high-profile head office in the Hanlon Creek Business Park.”
