The team at UIS is thankful for the privilege to have served you – our clients and friends for the past 94 years.
UIS Insurance & Investments was originally established in Tiffin in 1924 by Scott Garrett, with Rex Felton, Sr. joining the firm in 1928.
William (Bill) C. Felton began his insurance career with the agency in 1950. Bill Felton became the driving force behind the growth of the property & casualty agency through the 50’s and well into the 90’s.
UNITED INSURANCE SERVICE
The agency was incorporated as United Insurance Service in 1966.
In 1982, the office was moved to its present location at 51 South Washington Street in Tiffin, Ohio.
UIS went through a reorganization in 1984, with the purchase of the agency by Bill from his four partners. Michael (Mitch) Felton and Brian Smith joined UIS that year, with John Kobelt and Chuck Ritzler joining the organization in 1986.
United Insurance Service rebranded to UIS Insurance & Investments. The rebranding helped to better communicate the full range of insurance and investment services offered by UIS.
In 2018, UIS launched the "UIS Cares" initiative to help support causes and organizations in the many communities UIS serves.
