Fremont Insurance Company was founded in 1876 as Patron’s Mutual Fire Insurance Company. The company was formed by local farmers in the village of Newaygo, Michigan, due to their difficulty in obtaining affordable fire insurance for their farm property.
By 1932, the company expanded its charter to cover the entire state of Michigan as Fremont Mutual Fire Insurance Company. The company quickly became one of the largest farm fire companies in Michigan, eventually adding commercial products, workers’ compensation, marine, personal auto and umbrella coverage.
Today, Fremont Insurance Company is a Michigan exclusive provider supported by a network of over 175 independent insurance agencies. Dynamic products, exceptional service, and competitive pricing have made Fremont Insurance one of the fastest growing and most respected companies operating in Michigan.
Fremont became a part of The Auto Club Group in 2011.
