Western General Enters Maryland Auto Market

March 8, 2005

Maryland Insurance Commissioner Alfred W. Redmer, Jr. today welcomed to Maryland Western General Insurance Company, a California-domiciled, property and casualty insurer, to the state.

Western General will market automobile policies primarily to customers who are uninsured or who are having difficulty obtaining insurance through standard carriers using a network of independent agents and brokers, as well as direct marketing.

“Western General is a welcome addition to those insurance carriers already doing business in the Free State,” said Redmer. “Their focus on auto insurance customers who are having trouble getting coverage in this tough insurance market will be a significant benefit to all consumers by making additional options available.”

As of June 30, 2004, Western General was licensed to do business in eleven jurisdictions and had pending applications in twenty-seven states for a Certificate of Authority. The company, founded in 1971, is authorized in its domicile state to write liability, automobile and miscellaneous insurance.
