CompWest Insurance is continuing its expansion in California and the West, adding more than 50 new classifications that broaden its workers’ compensation appetite in construction, manufacturing and other areas.

CompWest specializes in workers’ compensation insurance, servicing accounts up to $1.5 million of annual premium in California and select Western states with consistent risk evaluation and pricing.

“This is our largest class code expansion and the sixth consecutive year our appetite has been expanded,” said Gene Simpson, vice president of Underwriting and Marketing at CompWest.. “We continue to see a strong demand for our comprehensive array of workers’ compensation solutions and we believe this expansion will be a springboard toward continued growth in the months and years ahead.”

CompWest’s current class expansion broadens the company’s ability to write new business and introduces new opportunities for agents to expand their book of business with new and existing clients. The rollout will take place in three phases through August.

CompWest’s appetite focuses on mid-size businesses in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, professional services, construction, retail and wholesale services. CompWest Insurance Company is a member of AF Group.
