Centre Insurance Company History


Centre Insurance was initially founded in 1969 under a different name, but a merger in 1977 with a London-based company allowed for the creation of Centre Insurance.

For quite some time, Centre Insurance was doing well financially. However, in 2009 it filed for bankruptcy and its assets, as well as its debts, were absorbed by Zurich.

Technically Centre is still doing business. However, a search online of their sales in specific states showed that it isn’t selling products for its own line.

Instead, it is selling Zurich products with the Zurich name on them.

If you call Centre Insurance and ask for information about the company, the representatives will refer you to Zurich’s North American website.

However, when you visit that website, you will find no information on Centre or the products that it offers.

If the company is selling all of Zurich’s products, then it offers commercial products ranging from auto insurance to workers’ compensation and everything in between.
