ENVIRONMENT

Pennsylvania Lumbermens and Indiana Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Companies offer a rewarding experience to those individuals who are dedicated to continually learning and developing their skills in not only their position but in the industry as well. For over 100 years, PLM and ILM have been providing property and casualty insurance in the lumber and building material industries. Our unwavering dedication to the wood niche is backed by our employees’ eagerness to understand the needs of our customers and our commitment to keeping them safe.

After operating separately in the wood niche for more than a century, PLM and ILM have emerged as leading property and casualty insurance providers. In order to continue and further their success, PLM and ILM recently announced their affiliation, effective late 2013. The integration process is ongoing, bringing significant improvements to processes and advancements to technologies as teams from both companies work to determine best practices. This is an exciting time to be a part of PLM and ILM as we strive to be America’s premier property and casualty insurance company serving the lumber and building material industries.

With the depth of products and services PLM and ILM offer, we are confident that our insureds will have the coverage they need to keep their businesses safe. However, to become the premier provider in the wood niche, we believe it starts with our employees. We understand that our industry and market segment are constantly evolving, so we encourage our employees to engage in continuous learning. We are members of various insurance societies and wood associations and we are proud of our employees’ involvement each year. Our staff is endlessly dedicated to being the most knowledgeable resource for our insureds, regardless of the question.

The PLM and ILM headquarters are located in Center City Philadelphia, with significant operations in Indianapolis, Indiana. These two locations offer access to all levels of management, a convenience afforded to the staff that works in these offices. While a significant number of employees work in the Philadelphia headquarters, the affiliation of PLM and ILM has grown our presence across the United States.

Aside from our commitment to our industries, PLM and ILM are also dedicated to helping our local communities. We have a longstanding relationship with the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania with a growing connection in Central Indiana. PLM and ILM participate in the annual “United Way Day of Caring” and each year we have a campaign kick-off breakfast and various activities to start the fundraising year.
