The Westfield Insurance Company

The Westfield Insurance Company, originally named the Ohio Farmers Insurance Company, was founded in 1848 by a group of farmers joining together to insure and protect their properties. This makes it one of the oldest insurance companies still doing business in the United States.

The company is currently the main subsidiary of the Westfield Group. Westfield Insurance is based in the small town of Westfield Center, Ohio. It is the largest employer there in Medina County.

It also provides a large variety of commercial property and liability insurance policies, agribusiness insurance and financial products.
