Knight Barry Title, a title, closing and escrow service, announced the acquisition of a well-known title insurance group in Minnesota owned by Chuck and David Bang as the company continues an expansion plan.

"Increasing our service area to Minnesota allows Knight Barry Title to provide more customers with our signature services and collaborative online tools," said Craig Haskins, chief operating officer of Knight Barry Title. "These five new locations in Minnesota match up well with our more than 45 additional offices throughout Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. We're eager to continue our growth as we provide more Knight Barry Title services across the United States."

The acquired companies are Goodhue County Abstract, Rice County Abstract & Title, Wabasha County Abstract & Title and Winona County Abstract & Title.

"Heading into our 164th year in business, Knight Barry Title is now bigger and stronger, with an immense opportunity for lenders and real estate professionals to use our services throughout the Midwest and beyond," Knight Barry Title President & CEO Jeffrey Green said.
