History of Foremost Insurance
On June 12, 1952, Edward J. Fry, Richard E. Riebel, Edward L. Stoddard, and a few investors founded Foremost Insurance Company. They wanted to provide insurance to those living in mobile homes. It was the first of its kind!
Nine years later, in 1961, the company introduced “Travel Sure,” which was the first travel trailer insurance policy. They met the needs of a new sizable American group of trailer enthusiasts. The travel trailer policy was the company’s first step toward diversification.
During the same decade, they commissioned a study on mobile homes. The investigation resulted in many states creating mandatory tie-down laws.
By 1970, Foremost Insurance covered any vehicle that someone could drive, including boats, motorcycles, snowmobiles, mini-bikes, and all-terrain vehicles.
During the 1980s, the AARP recognized Foremost Insurance for its specialized work for homeowners over 50 and officially endorsed the company. They are still meeting the needs of those in that income bracket, including those living on a fixed income. Later, AARP officially endorsed Foremost to offer motorcycle insurance to its customers due to its excellent claim service. They offer guaranteed renewability, multi-year policies, and reduced rates to meet the diverse needs of AARP’s clientele.
In the year 2000, Farmers Insurance Group of Companies acquired Foremost Insurance of Companies, and they are still a member today.
Since the beginning, Foremost Insurance has grown significantly! They have helped establish mobile home building codes along with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. They also regularly conduct the industry’s most complete market research report on manufactured homes and the individuals who live in them.
They are licensed to operate in all 50 states and Washington D.C. and have more than 38,000 representatives!
