For more than 90 years, we have sold more than insurance. We sell protection and help build futures.
We provide financial protection and peace of mind for our policyholders, shareholders, and employees.
Auto insurance was, of course, our first line of coverage. To further enhance the protection, in 1932, "24-
hour claim service" was established.

Originally protecting insureds in Tazewell County in Illinois, we have now grown to offer our competitive
insurance protection to insureds in six states: Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

The Pekin Insurance logo has undergone numerous changes throughout the last 90 years, In 2010, the
company underwent a significant re-branding, "Beyond the Expected," became our new slogan which
demonstrates our ability to deliver on our promises. Our new, modern-looking logo and our new slogan
both mirror the "above and beyond" service we and our independent agency force provide.
