Few companies enjoy the privilege of celebrating 80 years in business, and Wellington F. “Rocky” Roemer III, president and CEO of Roemer Insurance, attributes his company’s success to its loyal customers, dedicated staff and reputation for outstanding service established by its founders.

“We’re very fortunate to have been continually serving our clients for eight decades. It’s truly a tribute to all the amazing people who have come before us and built this agency over time, one customer at a time and one policy at a time,” Rocky said. “From my grandfather to my father; to all the wonderful employees and all the loyal customers we’ve had; to the relationships we’ve enjoyed over the years; it’s all brought us to this place.”

Roemer Insurance will celebrate its 80th anniversary on Friday, September 19, with a party in its parking lot at 3912 Sunforest Court in Toledo. The luncheon party will be held from 11:30 until 2:30, with food, drinks, games and music.

“We’re inviting all of our past and present customers, and our employees and their families to help us celebrate,” Rocky said. “And we’re going to close the office early to give our associates some extra time to enjoy the weekend.”

Founded in 1934 by Rocky’s grandfather,Wellington F. “DudRoemer, the company has always maintained a focus on serving the trucking industry, while branching into other types of insurance.

“In addition to our specialty in trucking insurance, over the many decades we’ve written virtually every kind of insurance you can imagine,” Rocky said. “These days, we’re re-emphasizing our commitment to health insurance and employee benefits insurance for local individuals and employers in the community and surrounding region. Healthcare reform is difficult for everybody, individuals and business owners alike. That’s why we are dedicated to helping people through these challenging times. We’re here for our customers.”

Roemer Insurance offers its extensive expertise to trucking fleets throughout the Midwest; its independent contractor owner/operator brand, Insure My Rig, serves truckers all over the country. Additionally, The Roemer Report, an online digest, provides valuable information for trucking executives.

“It’s a rare company that can prosper for 80 years; not too many companies are successful for three generations,” Rocky added. “We have a marvelous group of employees at Roemer. Every one of us understands and acknowledges that we have a strong and prosperous company today because of the efforts of all the people who came before us.”
