Headquartered in Kennesaw, Georgia, Thomco manages 20 national programs including ones for medical transportation, senior living, childcare centers, fitness clubs, pest control operators, tanning salons and inflatable rental operators, among others.

Thomco will continue to operate as a separate business unit with Greg Thompson and Bob Heaphey, current chairman and president, respectively, leading the operation. The operating unit will be a part of Markel Specialty.

Completion of the transaction expected to occur in the first quarter of 2012. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
