125 years Group Casier!
Group Casier launches the new ELVAS (Electric Vehicle Insurance) application.
With this application Group Casier wants to encourage the choice of an ecological vehicle in the form of a 100% electric personal or commercial vehicle and this by means of an adapted and complete insurance. All the information on elvas.be.
This solution complements previous initiatives such as carsharinginsurance.be and Group Casier's partnership in the "Green Deal for Shared Mobility".

Ten years of intense collaboration with Group Casier have led Marie-Luce Casier (4th generation and sister of Paul-Emmanuel) to decide to integrate her "Verschoore & Casier" portfolio into the office in Gent-Ledeberg.

Through these techniques, the company comes into contact with the risks of recovery, recycling and valorisation of substances, as well as the new forms of energy production under development.
The early signs of digitalisation and the role of Paul-Emmanuel in the standardisation of data exchange in the sector are leading to a definitively different approach in the management of corporate risks.

Paul-Emmanuel (4th generation) and his wife Karen Danneel (in 1991) join the company.
Since 1993, Casier & Co has been planning to create a comprehensive package for private individuals. At the same time, the foundations were laid for greater technicality towards companies. Casier & Co will specialize in the provision of insurance services in the media sector and to project companies.
A short experiment in banking insurance (1974-1984) led to the separation of banking activities into "Buro Casier", an independent company with specialised staff.
The company, which was named "Casier & Co" when Paul Casier died in 1972, has grown to become a reference for young and old.
The 3rd generation Casier drives the brothers Paul and Jules apart. In 1954, Paul and his sons Jean and Antoine founded the private limited company "Paul Casier & Sons".

Paul and Jules Casier succeeded Gustave and developed property management as a complementary activity.
