Trusted Insurance Advisors with a Passion for Excellence

Horst Insurance has served residents and businesses within the Southcentral and Southeastern regions of Pennsylvania for more than 100 years. As independent insurance brokers, we can build policies and solutions that protect what our clients value most, including their families, homes, businesses, employees, boats, pets, vehicles, and every other personal or business insurance need.

Today, Horst Insurance employs more than 40 insurance agents and professionals who are dedicated to providing tailored insurance programs and value-added services for commercial clients, and valuable coverage and service options for individuals, couples, and families. In all cases, we have one simple goal – to become your trusted insurance advisor.

As independent insurance brokers, we cultivate relationships with a carefully selected group of well-known regional, national, and global insurers. These relationships often benefit our clients by offering customized plans for commercial or business insurance, risk management and reduction, employee group benefits, workers’ compensation, property insurance, personal insurance, auto and fleet insurance, and other insurance solutions.

Horst Insurance is part of Horst Group, Inc., a fifth-generation company with roots that started in the late 1800s when Joseph Horst constructed a church in Lancaster County, PA. Horst Insurance was added in 1981 when Horst acquired Gingrich Stoudt Insurance agency, building on a legacy that was founded in 1917. Today, Horst Group consists of three core business units: Construction Services, Insurance & Benefits, and Management Services.

While Horst Group companies cover several industries, we are singularly focused on connecting with our customers, understanding their needs, exploring their ideas, and delivering products and services that they value.
