Hortica Insurance & Employee Benefits was founded in 1887 as a niche specific, mutual insurance company to write business insurance for the horticultural industry. Since 1927, the Company has been headquartered in Edwardsville and serves horticultural businesses throughout the United States. In 1965 Hortica created an independent agency division to provide employee benefits and personal insurance for our niche customers, as well as expand all product offerings to non-horticultural businesses and individuals in Edwardsville/Glen Carbon and Metro East communities.

Hortica Insurance & Employee Benefits is proud and excited to be an authorized AARP personal insurance provider. They have over 40 markets for commercial and personal insurance to service the local area. Their specialties include programs for financial institutions, professional offices and high value home and auto coverage.

The employees of Hortica support 60 local and national charities throughout the year. Most notable is Hortica’s Christmas Basket program that has been a tradition for over 40 years. Employees organize presents and groceries, and personally deliver gift baskets to qualifying recipients’ homes. In 2010, forty-one area families received baskets.

Hortica’s tag line, “To Guide and Provide,” represents their business philosophy to provide their customers with comprehensive, effective insurance solutions to protect their business and personal interests at an affordable price.

A member of the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce since September 1986, Hortica’s employees value the opportunity to participate in many worthwhile projects in the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area, as well as valuable networking opportunities.

Hortica Insurance & Employee Benefits is located at #1 Horticultural Lane in Edwardsville. To learn more about Hortica, call 618.656.4088 or go to www.hortica-insurance.com.
