Family Owned and Operated

Our Father/Farther-In-Law started Bowthorpe & Associates in the early 1980's after working for some time as a captive agent for American Hardware Insurance.  He found that he liked the option of providing his customers a choice of insurance solutions vs. being confined to one carrier.  He has always been customer focused and honest in his approach to helping his clients and prospects.  Our family took over the agency in 2005 and have continued in this tradition of honesty and integrity with a customer-centric approach in everything we do.  We continue today as an independent "Trusted Choice" insurance brokerage offering single source access to multiple insurance companies.
