Westfield Insurance Expands WesCom Farm Program Into North and South Carolina

WESTFIELD CENTER, OH--(Marketwire - Feb 1, 2012) - Westfield Insurance, an Ohio-based insurance carrier, has expanded its proprietary WesCom Farm Program into the states of North and South Carolina. These farm and agribusiness accounts will be serviced out of Westfield's Charlotte, N.C. and Lancaster, Pa. service offices.

To assist its network of independent agents in submitting new business through WesCom Farm, Josh Lauth, agribusiness field manager, and Amanda Logeman, agribusiness underwriter, are onsite and available to answer questions. Josh can be reached at 1.800.243.0205, and Amanda can be reached at 717.569.5361.

The system went into effect on Monday, Jan. 30, 2012 for policies with effective dates of Feb. 1, 2012 and later.

"Expanding our Farmowner Program into North and South Carolina provides us with an opportunity to build upon our current agricultural focus," said Craig Welsh, leader of the Agribusiness Division at Westfield Insurance. "Making Westfield's Farmowner Program available in these new states will enable our agency partners to further diversify their current book of business, as well as provide our agents, and customers, with an excellent product for their farm and agribusiness insurance needs."

The WesCom Farm Program was created for Westfield agents to easily enter, quote and endorse policies through an online processing system. Agents can generate quick or full quotes on new and existing business with this program. Printable, premium proposals display coverages and premium breakdowns on all quotes.
