We are excited to announce our latest partnership with Economical Insurance for the creation of a commemorative anniversary book to mark the company’s forthcoming 150-year milestone. Economical® 150—Still Making History will capture the journey of Economical Insurance from its founding by a group of community minded pioneers in 1871 through a century and a half of innovation, growth and service to Canadians, to becoming a leading, national, P&C company. Combining archival research with interviews with over 60 stakeholders, the story will be crafted on a rich source base and told in the broader context of continuities, changes and transitions in the North American insurance industry over the course of a century and a half.
“We are thrilled to be invited by Economical Insurance to partner with them in the creation of a historical record of 150 years of continuously serving Canadians. The company archives are a treasure trove for the corporate historian. We are looking forward to immersing ourselves in the most fascinating historical documents and artefacts going back to the Pioneer days to tell the story of this iconic Canadian company in its various contexts and dimensions.”Dr. Ulrich Frisse, President and CEO of Historical Branding Solutions Inc.
