A Humble Start

It all started in 1941.  Believing that independence was the best way to serve his customers, J. Logan Unland opened an agency in Pekin, Illinois.  Joined by his son Jim, after serving in the US Army, the agency prospered by providing a “quality first” solution for commercial and business insurance.

Establishing a Name

You can’t be part of a community unless you serve the community!  Following that philosophy, the employees of the Unland Companies strive to keep the tradition of service alive by sharing their energy and talent with their communities through coaching, fund raising, teaching, and more.  Now with locations throughout central Illinois, there is more to do.

Agency Recognition

Consistent quality performance has been rewarded by numerous awards from the companies that we represent and the organizations that we serve.  These include some notable awards from the Independent Insurance Agents Association and the National Association of Health Underwriters.  However, providing quality risk management services to our customers is the recognition we work for every day.
