BANGOR, Maine — Bangor-based Varney Insurance Agency has expanded its physical footprint and the specialized services it can offer through the acquisition of Santee Risk Managers of South Carolina..
With the acquisition, Varney Agency is able to expand the range and depth of products offered to forestry and inland marine operations in particular, a key component of Maine’s agricultural workforce.
“Varney Agency has a proud history of servicing the hard-working people of Maine and throughout New England,” said Tim Varney, CEO of Varney Agency, in a press release. “This acquisition expands the ability of our logging and forestry operations and puts us in position to provide even greater value to both small and large clients alike.”
Varney Agency launched its American Loggers Insurance Co. with the Pelletier Brothers of the Discovery Channel show “American Loggers,” to offer insurance to logging companies, and trucking and heavy equipment industries.
“Understanding and protecting the specific needs of those who work off the land is what we do well,” stated Varney in the press release. “Adding more tools to our toolbox means helping more businesses lower their costs and stay competitive.”
Varney’s acquisition of Santee Risk Managers will create its 23rd location.
