COLUMBUS, Ohio – April 26, 2010 – The State Auto Insurance Group has reached a significant milestone in its sales of personal lines insurance: one million policies and one billion dollars in premium.
State Auto offers auto, home and other personal lines insurance products in 33 states. The company has experienced considerable growth in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut and Texas, where State Auto most recently began offering personal lines products.
“Success in our expansion states, along with new products and best-in-class automation for our agency partners is playing a significant role in our growth,” said Vice President and Director of Personal Insurance Joel Brown. “We’re honored by this achievement and grateful to the independent insurance agencies who represent State Auto and the individuals and families who have placed their trust in us.
“While we’ve certainly grown as a company over the past 90 years, our tradition of compassion, integrity and superior service has not changed,” said Brown. “What was as important to our founder, Robert Pein, remains important today – treating our customers as we ourselves would want to be treated.”
By the end of 1921, its first year of operation, State Automobile Mutual Insurance Company had written $18,005.30 in auto insurance – then its only line of business. Today, the State Auto Group exceeds $1.5 billion in premium, with products that include auto, home, business and specialty lines insurance.
