What We Do

Get an effective surety credit program

Surety Credit or Bonds are commonly categorized into commercial bonds and contract bonds.

  • Commercial bonds are typically used by businesses that require licenses and ensure they will adhere to the regulations and codes that relate to their line of work.
  • Contract bonds are typically associated with a project, such as a construction project, and ensure that the bond owner is covered in the case of a contractor not performing their agreed scope of work.

Rather than surety and bonds being an afterthought or an add-on to your commercial insurance program, we provide the specialized expertise of an in-house department that focuses exclusively on surety, with decades of experience behind each team member. We have key relationships with local and national underwriters that allow us the creativity and credibility to build a surety program that fits your business needs.
