Acuity reaches new insurance milestone

Acuity, a Sheboygan-based property and casualty insurance company, announced today it has has passed the 250,000 milestone in policies written, an all-time record for the firm.

“It took ACUITY 65 years to reach the 100,000 mark and over 80 years to reach 200,000. Less than six years later, we’ve now reached the quarter-million mark thanks to our employees and independent agents,” said Ben Salzmann, Acui5ty president and chief executive officer.
In the calendar year 2011, the insurer saw an 8.1 percent increase in business that propelled it to an all-time record in written premium. In the first quarter of 2012, Acuity nearly doubled that growth rate, recording a 15 percent increase in premium that puts the company on track to add $125 million to its top line this year.
“Clearly, independent agents have gotten the message that Acuity has an appetite to write business and the capacity to take it on,” said Salzmann. “We are able to provide financial protection at fair and competitive pricing to a growing number of individuals, families, and businesses across our entire operating territory.”
