Company Profile: Oregon Mutual℠ was founded in McMinnville, Oregon in 1894 by a close group of business owners, who only wanted the best for themselves and their neighbors. They wanted their own company, one that understood the needs of the local people in the West. “Insurance of the people, by the people and for the people” was their motto. They organized a “Mutual” insurance company based on the concept that members needs come first.
Oregon Mutual℠ is in the heart of Oregon’s wine country and has been providing winery coverage from the beginning. Proximity to customers and expertise in wine coverage can’t be matched with any other insurance carrier providing this product line. As a participating member of various local American Viticultural Areas (AVAS) in the region, they gather with member vintners and winemakers several time a year to discuss contemporary topics and share support for a great industry. They work with local independent agents to craft a balance and robust policy that fits a customer’s’ needs. Oregon Mutual is the insurance company that understands wineries and vineyards.
Oregon Mutual℠ remains the oldest, independent, mutual insurance company west of the Mississippi, with over 125 years of serving customers personal, commercial, and agricultural needs throughout Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho. Unlike some insurance companies, Oregon Mutual does not answer to institutional investors. They are in business for you.
Customer, Employee and Community Oriented:
Some other insurance companies refer to their customers only as policyholders. At Oregon Mutual, policyholders are members. Whether calling for a quote, a general question or filing a claim, members are treated with dignity, compassion, and respect. As a member of Oregon Mutual, you’re more than just a customer.
Oregon Mutual℠, to celebrate their milestone birthday, introduced a total re-brand of the company that better represents who they are—stable, honest, and always willing to lend a hand to those who need it most. It’s an Oregon approach and one they are proud to be associated with. The spirit led by the pioneers who settled this region is the spirit that drives Oregon Mutual to serve neighbors and communities. Oregon. It’s Who We Are.
As an Oregon Mutual policyholder, you have an ownership stake in the company and can be assured that your company has your interests and welfare first in mind. They are not a stock company who raises capital by selling stock, so they don’t answer to shareholders, they answer to their members. Oregon Mutual does not have market and investor pressure to maximize profits, which helps them keep rates as low as possible. Their foremost responsibility is to serve their policyholders. “It's who we are™”
