Our commercial lines underwriting division insures many different kinds of businesses. We're particularly good, however, at providing coverage for businesses that are small-to-medium-sized. Retail and wholesale businesses, as well as service providers, professional offices, and contractors are just some of the businesses in which we specialize.
Business insurance can be complicated, and every business West Bend insures is carefully evaluated to find the insurance coverage that best fits the business’ need. Working with an independent insurance agent who represents West Bend is the best way to determine the right mix of insurance coverage for your business.
Our agents tell us our Home and Highway package policy is simply the best in the business. Period. And because we want to keep it that way, we continue to analyze our marketplace to gain a better understanding of what our customers need and want. At the same time, we constantly review the way we write business so we can be sure we're providing the best service to our agents and policyholders.
Sometimes, due to the nature of the service they provide, it's not easy for some businesses to find the right coverage. We understand that.
NSI is our specialty division that focuses on market segments and situations many other carriers don't want to insure. The professionals at NSI have decades of experience creating specialty insurance and bond programs. West Bend's customers benefit from this experience with creative products and services that meet the needs of businesses other insurers think are unusual or "hard to place". These include child care centers, beauty salons, fitness centers, YMCAs, and pest control companies.
NSI also offers construction bonds, court and fiduciary bonds, and fidelity coverages.
