R. Dale Daniels founded The Brimfield Agency in his home in 1969. The agency was located on State Route 43, South of Brimfield, where Dale and his wife Eileen ran the business from an office in their garage.
As the agency grew, it moved several times to accommodate its customers with superior service. The agency included several part time agents when it relocated to State Route 43 and Brimfield Drive in 1973. In 1978, the agency moved to 1204 Tallmadge Road where it remains today. When Dale Daniels retired in 1991, Chas Madonio bought the agency. The 90′s were significant years of growth for Brimfield Insurance. In 1995, the Major Agency in Mantua was acquired and by 1996, Brimfield Insurance had doubled its size in just five years.
In 1999, the Esposito Agency of Ravenna was acquired and by the year 2000, the total combined volume of the agencies made it one of the largest in Portage County. This acquisition gave our customers the convenience of two locations. Because Brimfield Insurance and the Esposito Agency were under the same ownership, policyholders could make payments and obtain service at either office.
In 2002, the Stow Agency opened for business in Stow, Ohio. Though the agency was started from scratch, it is now one of the fastest growing offices. It has expanded its Summit County base into Medina County, with two producers located in Brunswick, Ohio.
In 2008, Chlysta Insurance Service was acquired by the Brimfield Insurance Group. After merging with the Esposito Agency, it has doubled the size of the Ravenna operation, making it one of the largest agencies in Ravenna. The combined offices are now known as Portage Insurance.
Though the Brimfield Insurance Group deals mainly in auto, home, business and umbrella insurance, we are also major players in life insurance, health and group insurance. We have specialists in each area. The agency is licensed with eight major auto carriers as well as numerous special lines companies.
