The insurance industry is filled with multinational conglomerates focused solely on improving their balance sheets. But AssuredPartners is not one of them. Our focus is on relationships; on forging rock solid partnerships with successful regional and local firms who are as fervent as we are about providing clients with best-in-class asset protection and unparalleled service. That commitment has empowered us to be the fastest-growing independent insurance agency in the U.S. Founded in 2011 as a national partnership of leading independent property and casualty and employee benefits brokerage firms, we're now one of the largest brokers in the nation with offices in 30 states and two countries. The Columbia, SC, office is able to use the resources of the AP Team, but maintain our local presence as a trusted advisor to our clients in the Forest Products Industry.
