1st Guard Corporation started in 1937, as a Detroit based insurance
agency. Initially the company sold general lines’ insurance to small businesses.
It later created a truck insurance division to supplement its general lines' sales.
Mr. Edmund B. Campbell, Jr. purchased the company in 1965. Recognizing the potential
of the truck insurance division, he directed a larger share of the agency’s resources
to developing insurance products for independent truckers. His efforts culminated
in 1969, when Mr. Campbell, Jr. divested the general lines’ portion of the agency.
That made 1st Guard Corporation an exclusive provider of truck insurance programs for
owner operators, and the company has never looked back.
In 1991, Mr. Campbell, Jr. sold the company to his son, Mr. Edmund B. Campbell,
III. Under Mr. Campbell, III the company embarked upon a growth and automation strategy
that led to the formation of First Guard Insurance Company in 1997. Today First
Guard Insurance Company is rated “A” (Excellent) by AM BEST and underwrites the
majority of the over 15,000 vehicles serviced by 1st Guard Corporation.
By writing business directly rather than through agents and brokers the 1st Guard
organization enjoys one of the lowest cost structures in the insurance industry.
