Continental Underwriters, Inc. announces the formation of a company which specializes in the placement of comprehensive insurance coverages for the Forest Products Industry, working with agents and brokers across the United States and Canada.
C. Preston Herrington, III, President of Continental Underwriters, Inc., had this to say: "After spending 17 years as the Managing General Agent and Wholesaler of Property and Casualty Insurance specializing in the Forest Products Industry at Keith D. Peterson & Co., Inc.-VA, I purchased the operation in 2013. On February 1, 2013, I established Continental Underwriters Inc. (CU). CU will work exclusively with agents and brokers across the United States and Canada in the placement of Forest Products risks which operations consist of Manufacturing, Distribution and Wholesaling / Retailing of Lumber and Building Materials. In addition to Forest Products risks, we assist agents and brokers with the placement of heavy manufacturing and other difficult to place risks. We are The National Solution to Your Local Risk.
"We represent more than 14 carriers which specialize in, or have an affinity for, The Forest Products Industry, therefore we uniquely positioned to address the needs of an agent or broker. Given the looming hard market and reduced capacity facing the Forest Products Insurance Industry, it is critical to have key relationships to ensure the most comprehensive placement with the most favorable terms. Our longstanding carrier relationships enable us to negotiate and provide competitive asset protection programs for your clients. We are open for business and welcome the opportunity to serve the agent and broker community. Please give us a call at 804-643-7800 or send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Continental Underwriters, Inc., The National Solution to Your Local Risk."
