Oklahoma City-based American Farmers and Ranchers Insurance has officially expanded its operations to 24 states, stretching from the southeastern through the midwest and western two-thirds of the US.
The Idaho Department of Insurance has recently approved the acquisition of General Fire and Casualty Company by American Farmers and Ranchers Insurance (AFR), which was completed in November 2007. All General Fire and Casualty Company operations are presently being officially renamed American Farmers and Ranchers Insurance Company, with headquarters based in Meridian, Idaho.
American Farmers & Ranchers will continue to sell commercial lines insurance using the acquired company’s risk manager policy.
Ray Wulf, president and CEO of AFR, said: This is a culmination of a plan by our management and the board of directors to spread risk and enter 24 new geographic markets via the acquisition of General Fire and Casualty Company. It is a bright future for AFR Insurance and we look forward to providing quality insurance products for the fine people of these new states.
