Strickland Insurance Group, Inc. can trace its roots back to its start as a retail agency and wholesale agency back in 1969. Strickland Insurance and Realty, Inc. was incorporated in January 1970 through the merger of the following companies: C. Brantley Strickland Insurance and Realty, Farrell Insurance Agency, Auto Insurance Agency and Strickland Insurance Brokers (SIB). The current name, Strickland Insurance Group (SIG), was adopted in 1992. Prior to 1998, the focus of SIG was non-standard automobile insurance and SIB which offered commercial insurance products and service to its agency force.
Over the years, the group represented many different non-standard auto companies and the decision was made to form its own company. Atlantic Casualty Insurance Company (ACIC) was formed in October of 1983. Considerable growth of the automobile program saw the formation of Atlantic Indemnity in 1990 and Atlantic Security Insurance Company in 1992. In 1998, SIG sold its personal auto divisions, which were writing in excess of $110 million in premiums and operating in six states. Post sale, ACIC and SIB remained under the group’s ownership.
Today, Atlantic Casualty is authorized to write business on a non-admitted basis in 49 states and the District of Columbia, and operates as an admitted carrier in our state of domicile, North Carolina. Its products are sold exclusively through over 100 wholesale agents.
