SPEECH OF HON. BILL HUIZENGA OF MICHIGAN IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2016


Mr. HUIZENGA of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Auto-Owners Insurance Company's one-hundred years of serving citizens in Michigan and across the country.

Founded in one room of a bank building in 1916, Auto-Owners is now the largest property and casualty insurance company based in Michigan. Auto-Owners maintains its headquarters in Lansing, Michigan, where it serves its policyholders with a team of more than 43,000 agents. Today, the company offers auto and life insurance claims to Americans in more than half the country.

Over the last one-hundred years, Auto-Owners has consistently demonstrated its strength and commitment to its policyholders. During the Great Depression, the company paid all claims in cash, writing more than $2.5 million in insurance premiums, despite drastic deflation and widespread instability throughout the country. Auto-Owners now issues over 5.1 million personal, commercial, and life policies with the same values of financial accountability and loyal service. As demonstrated by its A++ rating from A.M. Best, Auto-Owners has continued to put its policyholders first.

Auto-Owners' stated mission is to provide the best claim service in the industry. It is a mission they have fulfilled for the last century, and this centennial milestone is an important achievement. For one-hundred years, Auto-Owners has maintained its dedication to its policyholders to be there when people need them most. Their unwavering commitment is worthy of recognition and applause.

I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring Auto-Owners Insurance, its employees, and its loyal agents for their efforts to live the values that define them and deliver on the promise found in their products.
