Atlantic Specialty Lines of Pennsylvania has acquired the business assets of ESL, a wholesale insurance brokerage subsidiary of Penn National Insurance.

Atlantic Specialty Lines (ASL) operates as a wholesale brokerage, specializing in excess and surplus lines of insurance for retail agents in most of the US. ESL was established to provide non-standard products to compliment the portfolio of Penn National Insurance’s standard products.

Martin Kanipe, executive vice president of ASL, said: We are excited to add the ESL staff members to our ASL-PA operation. The combination of ASL’s and ESL’s markets creates an outstanding opportunity for agents to meet their non-standard excess and surplus and professional liability market needs.

ESL’s long-standing association with Penn National Insurance and their producers brings a tremendous asset to our organization.
