State Farm, well known for being a “good neighbor” by “being there” for our customers, was founded in 1922 by retired farmer and insurance salesman George Jacob “G.J.” Mecherle. We now insure more cars and homes than any other insurer in the U.S. A mutual company focused on its policyholders, State Farm is currently ranked number 41 on the Fortune 500 list of largest companies.
The State Farm Story began with Mecherle’s original vision for State Farm: operate fairly and do the right thing for our customers. While his vision still guides us today, our continued mission is to be the first and best choice in the products and services we provide.
Originally a single line auto insurance company, State Farm now offers nearly 100 products and services, in five different lines of business, to help customers manage today and prepare for tomorrow. We show our commitment to our policyholders by handling nearly 35,000 claims per day. The history of State Farm not only demonstrates we do the right thing for our customers; we do the right thing for communities. We are heavily involved in and support communities through sponsorships, safety programs, education leadership, and service-learning. For more information, visit StateFarm.com
