Bituminous is the largest insurance arm of the Old Republic International Corporation. Keep this in mind when considering the company as it is much larger and well-backed then initially thought. This is important to a consumer because with a strong financial backing the company is able to provide many policy discounts and offer very low premiums to new customers and not be at a loss for the year. Bear in mind that often times these premiums are raised to the average level after your first year of a contract with a new company. Bituminous began in 1917 only offering workers compensation insurance. The intent was to grow the business and be the leader in offering such insurance to not only large corporations but also to small businesses across the United States. However in 1942 Bituminous began offering auto insurance policies to customers as it found that many of the people it insured for workers compensation were also low risk drivers. Known collectively as Bitco, the company serves 41 states including its founding state of Illinois. In addition Bituminous processes over 400 million dollars in gross premiums per year.
