Westan Insurance Group’s offices are located at 315 South Second St. in downtown Union City. The local agency serves customers in Union City and the surrounding area.
Grange only sells its products through independent insurance agents.
“We believe strongly in backing our agents and giving them the tools to succeed,” Grange Insurance president and CEO Tom Welch said. “Westan Insurance Group is a terrific example of a high-performing agency and how independent agents provide the best option for people looking to protect what’s important to them. They are big contributors to our success and we thank them for their dedication and partnership.”
Grange Insurance is based in Columbus, Ohio, and has $2 billion in assets and more than $1 billion in annual revenues. Through its network of independent agents, Grange offers auto, home, life and business insurance protection.
