Explore our Interactive Map to discover the variety of wood businesses that we insure and may be found in your local communities: lumberyards, woodworking shops, hardware stores, light manufacturing operations, sawmills and building material dealers.
PLM operates on an open brokerage basis meaning that we do not appoint our producers or have premium or volume commitments. We work with any broker that chooses to pursue a piece of wood business whether it be one account or 100 accounts. Most agencies enjoy a linear relationship where the carrier interacts exclusively with their agent, and the agent interacts exclusively with their client, the insured.
The PLM distribution strategy is more of a triangular relationship. We build relationships with our brokers AND our insureds. As opposed to representing the carrier as their agent, in the PLM world, you would be representing the insured.
