The History of Iron Insurance

Iron Insurance is a result of the 2022 merger between Assurance Partners and Keller Leopold. Keller Leopold, founded by Harold Keller in 1943, was a reputable insurance agency with a long-standing history. Assurance Partners has its roots dating back to 1970 when it was first established as Insurors & Investors. Over the years, the company went through various name changes, finally becoming Assurance Partners in 2014. Through the merger, Iron Insurance was born and carries the legacy and expertise of its predecessors, providing comprehensive insurance solutions to its clients.
