The Culver Road Amory welcomes a new tenant, as Walsh Duffield Companies Inc. moves their Rochester operations under one roof on Friday, February 24.  Headquartered in Buffalo, NY Walsh Duffield has seen recent growth in the Rochester market through the transition of the Stuart G.  Smith Agency to the Walsh Quinn Agency in 2014, as well as the acquisition of the Barry York Agency and Don Allen Agency in 2016.

The new location, at 155 Culver Road, will include 10,000 square feet of space that will house 25 employees, with room for growth.  In addition to sharing an office, all operations will begin functioning under the Walsh Duffield name.

“Within the insurance industry, it is common for business to be driven by acquisitions,” said Edward Walsh Jr., President  & CEO of Walsh Duffield.  “We are committed to our presence in Rochester and want to eliminate confusion for our customers by moving towards one Walsh Duffield.  We feel that our new space at the armory is a great start, allowing our entire Rochester team to come together to work collaboratively under one name in a new, state of the art office,” said Walsh.

Previous locations for Walsh Duffield include the Barry York Agency and Walsh Quinn Agency on Marsh Road in Pittsford, and the Don Allen Agency on Linden Avenue in Rochester.

155 Culver Road,
Suite 200
Rochester, NY 14620

Along with the move, Walsh Duffield is working to replicate the office culture that has garnered success in the Buffalo market.  Walsh Duffield has consistently been recognized as a Best Places to Work office, along with a wellness nod from the American Heart Association as a Fit-Friendly Worksite.  Within the new Culver Road office, Walsh Duffield plans to continue their emphasis on health in the workplace by providing standing workstations, a walking meeting room equipped with treadmill desks, and a healthy vending machine set up by registered dieticians.

"Wellness is one of our core values, and we want to make sure our Rochester team has the tools necessary to embrace this key part of our culture,” explained Walsh.

In addition, Walsh Duffield is working closely with developer Rainaldi Brothers, Inc. to create a fitness facility on site for Walsh Duffield employees and commercial tenants of the armory, which is slated to open later this spring. 

“We have grown very proud of the role each tenant of Culver Road Armory has played in creating a truly unique sense of place and community.  Walsh Duffield represents an important and energetic addition to the Armory family and we look forward to what the Walsh Duffield team will add the culture of our project,” says Frederick Rainaldi, Managing Member, Whitney Baird Associates, LLC.
