Farmers Insurance History

Farmers Insurance Group was founded as Farmers Automobile Inter-Insurance Exchange in 1928 by Thomas Leavey and John Tyler.  The first office was in Los Angeles, California where the company is still headquartered today.

In 1935, the company launched a division specifically for truck insurance.

In 1942, the company launched a division specifically for home insurance.

In 1950, Mid-Century Insurance became a subsidiary of Farmers.

In 1953, the company acquired New World Life Insurance Co.

John Tyler died in 1973 and Thomas Leavey became CEO.  Leavey retired in 1978.

In 1988, Farmers was acquired by BATUS Inc. in a hostile takeover that took 8 months.  Zurich Financial Services was created as a holding company for Farmers Insurance.

In recent years the company has acquired several larger insurers including Foremost Insurance Group in 2000, Bristol West Holdings in 2007 and 21st Century Insurance in 2009.

Farmers is currently the third largest provider of consumer home and auto insurance in the US.  They current insurance over 20 million individual policies.

I have always been insured with mercury and just recently I bought a new car. So I thought Maybe I would look for other options. I called farmers and I asked them for the requirements to get insured by them he then told me an i quote ” driver lisence registration Vin number and I also need your social security number ” I then said to my self wtf!!!! So I decided to stay with mercury where I’ve been OK for the last 8 years
