Northeast Ohio Company Now a Global Leader
AKRON, Ohio, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group™ (C&F Pet), one of the largest and oldest North American pet insurance providers, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. This milestone coincides with a recent expansion of the business to include all pet insurance within Crum & Forster, growing the total number of pets insured to more than 500,000.
“It’s an exciting time for C&F Pet. Twenty-five years is an amazing accomplishment, one that means we continue our mission of protecting more pets and helping to strengthen that important bond between pet parents and their dogs and cats,” said Bob Capobianco, Senior Vice President, Crum & Forster Pet Insurance Group.
Originally founded in North Canton, Ohio, the company has been in Akron, Ohio, near the historic Akron Airdock, since 2015. In 2006, as part of a strategic partnership with The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), the company introduced its most recognizable program, ASPCA® Pet Health Insurance.
As a result of a multi-channel distribution approach consisting of direct-to-consumer, co-branded partnerships, and white label brands, C&F Pet has experienced tremendous growth in the past decade. The company also has a global reach, with pet insurance programs in the U.S. (ASPCA Pet Health Insurance), Canada (Pets Plus Us), and the U.K. (Pet Protect).
In addition to the ongoing strategic partnership with the ASPCA, other partnerships include PetCoach, LLC (provider of Petco pet insurance plans), Pumpkin Insurance Services, and Spot Insurance Services, as well as Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), and Allstate (Canada). The company was a founding member of the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA).
“Looking back at everything this company has done, it would not have been possible without all the great people involved,” added Capobianco. “I’m honored to work with a team of more than 400 employees who are just as passionate about pets as our customers are.”
