Archway Insurance – J.H. Deveau was founded in 2018. Located in Meteghan, our bilingual team is proud to support our clients in both official languages.
J H Deveau Insurance was founded by Joseph Harley Deveau from Mavillette back in the early 1930s. Joseph grew his business from his home until in 1964 when he sold to his son Raymond Deveau. Raymond incorporated the business and soon thereafter moved the office from Mavillette to Meteghan. For many years Raymond personally saw to the insurance needs of his clients. During these years, Raymond’s son-in-law Roland Comeau joined the family business and then took over in the late 1980s when Raymond retired.
Thanks to the support of a great staff and wonderful clients, the agency continues to service the insurance needs of their community. Current office manager Jean-Guy Comeau, Roland’s son, represents the fourth generation of management.
Under the Archway banner, the original mission of JH Deveau Insurance is still upheld: to provide quality insurance products and professional advice to our clients by focusing exclusively on general insurance products for the needs of our local community.
