CompWest Broadens Appetite In Construction, Manufacturing and Other Areas

CompWest Insurance is continuing its expansion in California and the West, adding more than 50 new classifications that broaden its workers’ compensation appetite in construction, manufacturing and other areas.

“This is our largest class code expansion and the sixth consecutive year our appetite has been expanded,” said Gene Simpson, vice president of Underwriting and Marketing at CompWest.  “We have best-in-class products, industry-leading expertise, a strong network of agents in California and throughout the West and we want to increase our value to them by offering a broader appetite.  We continue to see a strong demand for our comprehensive array of workers’ compensation solutions and we believe this expansion will be a springboard toward continued growth in the months and years ahead.”

CompWest’s current class expansion broadens the company’s ability to write new business and introduces new opportunities for agents to expand their book of business with new and existing clients.  The rollout will take place in three phases through August.

CompWest specializes in workers’ compensation insurance, servicing accounts up to $1.5 million of annual premium in California and select Western states with consistent risk evaluation and pricing.

CompWest’s appetite focuses on mid-size businesses in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, professional services, construction, retail and wholesale services.  Dedicated loss control consultants help implement customized loss prevention strategies, and CompWest’s Workers’ Compensation with Care® and Keep at Work® strategies provide assistance to injured workers throughout the entire claims process.
