On September 12, 1912, the Michigan Manufacturers Association joined with a group of local manufacturers to form the Michigan Workmen’s Compensation Mutual Insurance Company. Based on the mutual concept, the mission of this newly created partnership was to “solve the problems of Workmen’s Compensation, reduce accidents, exchange experience and maintain a high standard of service to employers and employees.” While Amerisure has grown considerably since then, the spirit of that early partnership and its mission continues today.
A commitment to service dating back to 1912.
