The company started off with writing policies and serving with the level of trust and respect that they are still known for until today. Since then, a small group of Ohio farmers joined together to build an insurance company in order to protect their property. Initially known as The Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Medina County and adopting the name of Westfield in 1971, the company has evolved to what it is today. Even though they have modernized their 19th century image to cater to consumers in the 21st century, Westfield still assures you that one thing remains the same: their integrity and commitment to their customers.
For the past 75 years, Westfield has been rated “A” for financial strength by A.M. Best. Best’s Financial Strength Rating is an independent opinion of an insurer’s financial strength and ability to meet its ongoing insurance policy and contract obligations. As proof of their ongoing excellence, the company has received a number of awards. Among them is Top 10 for Ease of Doing Business, North America’s Top Small to Mid-size Companies for Leaders (Hewitt Associates) and Top 10 Best Employers in Ohio (Society for Human Resource Management). These stated awards are just a few of many more that showcase the company’s quality.
By 2004, the company had generated an estimated $1.3 billion in annual sales. Even when the insurance industry continued to undergo consolidation, it was easy to believe that the company, now more than 150 years old, would continue to prosper.
