About Us

Newberry Insurance was started in 1913 in South Windsor, Connecticut, and is still family owned and operated.

Through the years we have evolved to form the Newberry Group- a team of five insurance agencies, with over thirty dedicated staff members. Together we represent more insurance companies than any other agencies in the area, which allows us to offer our clients the coverage that they need, at the best rates available.

After more than one hundred years in business, our goals remain the same- to conduct our business with integrity, to provide exceptional customer service, and to help our clients protect their assets by offering a full spectrum of insurance products.

We currently write insurance in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New York,and South Carolina.
