Amica Mutual Insurance is an American mutual insurance company which sells automobile, homeowners, marine and personal umbrella liability insurance, founded in 1907. It employs more than 3,200 people in 40 offices across the United States, and is headquartered in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Amica is one of the few remaining large-scale mutual insurance firms that consistently ranks highly in J.D. Power and other consumer satisfaction rankings.[1][2]

Company history[edit]

Automobile Mutual Insurance Company of America was founded by A.T. Vigneron in 1907 in Providence, Rhode Island, offering auto, fire and theft insurance.[3]

Amica was organized as a mutual insurance company, meaning that the company was owned by policyholders rather than stockholders.

In 1941, Amica opened its first branch office in Boston, Massachusetts. The company added homeowners' insurance in 1956 and later added marine and personal excess liability insurance. In 1970, Amica Life Insurance began. In 1994, Amica's corporate offices moved from Providence, Rhode Island, to a much larger campus in nearby Lincoln.[3]

The company celebrated its 100th year in business in 2007.[3]
