Responder

Some of our associates are onsite in MN! Responder is a 35-foot commercial vehicle custom-designed as a mobile office that travels to areas throughout the Midwest where West Bend policyholders have been hit by such severe weather as heavy hail, windstorms, or tornadoes.

We're inspecting hail damaged vehicles for our policyholders in Minnesota affected by the recent storms.

Our Second Home

"The paneled door on the attractive new red brick building on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Poplar Street, new headquarters for the West Bend Mutual Fire Insurance Company's home office, will swing wide at three o'clock tomorrow afternoon," reported the West Bend Daily News in November of 1940.

Our second home featured walnut and leather furniture, paneled walls, and soft blue-green walls and carpeting. Pictures of our founding fathers, Samuel S. Barney, Patrick O'Meara, and Charles Leins were proudly displayed in the lobby. This 5,000 square foot building still stands in West Bend today.

As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, we love sharing old photos and stories of our history.  Here's to the next 125 years!

Our First Home

We love sharing pieces of our history as we celebrate our 125th anniversary. Pictured is our first home office, located at 519 Hickory Street in West Bend, it still stands today! 

Even though our first home office was occupied by November of 1908, there weren’t any full-time associates yet. Our first full-time associate was a local music teacher and orchestra leader and hired as a bookkeeper in 1918.
