Armed with an aggressive growth strategy, United Valley Insurance Services Inc., headquartered in Fresno, is expanding beyond its Central Valley base and into Northern California.

Seven of its nine new affiliates are located in the Central Coast, Bay Area and East Bay. The remaining two are Central Valley agencies.

Mason Insurance, San Mateo; Castle & Co., Redwood City; Granite Professional Insurance Brokerage, Pleasanton; and Nichols Insurance Services, Castro Valley.

In keeping up with its expansion plans, United Valley opened an office in Hollister. This office will serve as the hub for servicing personal lines clients for United Valley members and as a marketing office responsible for recruitment of new affiliates and company-agency relations.

As one of California’s largest insurance agency clusters, United Valley offers an impressive selection of markets as well as distinctive and exclusive “signature products.” For example, United Valley is now offering a commercial auto product for the exclusive use of its members. The product is underwritten, rated and issued out of the company’s Fresno headquarters.
