Celebrating Our 80th Anniversary

By November 13, 2019No Comments

This year, Burns & Burns Insurance is announcing their 80th anniversary as a full-service independent insurance agency. The past 80 years have been filled with providing their customers with exceptional service for all of their insurance needs!

It started back in 1939 when founder Henry Burns made the change from high school principal to insurance agent. Although this change was seemingly drastic from his previous track, Henry was determined to make Burns and Burns Associates, Inc. successful. He associated with a personal lines company and began to write auto and property policies out of his home office in the evenings after school. In 1948, Henry retired from education and continued into insurance full-time with a brick and mortar office location, “Clarion Insurance Services”. At that time, Clarion was the heart of this area making it the ideal place to headquarter his business. Since then, Burns & Burns has extended its reach around Northwestern Pennsylvania and currently has nine branches, located in Clarion, Bradford, Clearfield, Erie, Meadville, Mercer, New Wilmington, Tionesta, and Warren.

To keep up with the times, Burns and Burns Associates, Inc. have many innovative projects in the works! Check out our updated social media on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram and come visit with us at fun community events in the area! Stay tuned in this summer for a completely renovated website!

Since its foundation in 1939, the agency has upheld Henry Burns’ philosophy of always putting the client first. Our agency fulfills its mission by representing over sixty insurance carriers, providing a range of commercial and personal insurance coverages, taking continuing education courses to keep up on the latest insurance trends, and using a consultative approach with clients.

The firm consists of experienced insurance agents and customer service representatives who are eager to assist both individuals and businesses with tailored insurance solutions to fit their unique needs.
