Featured Business of the Month – Meyer-Badenhop Insurance!
Meyer-Badenhop Insurance dates back to 1933 when Herman Meyer started to sell fire and casualty insurance to his neighbors in rural Defiance County. In 1954, Herman passed the business to his son Eldon, who continued for another 44 years. In 1978 Joe Meyer, the third generation Meyer began his insurance career with his father Eldon.
In 1987 Eldon and Joe decided to expand the agency into another area, and they purchased the Badenhop Agency in Hamler, Ohio from Harold “Pete” Badenhop. The agency then had two locations to better serve their clients.
In 1988 Glenn Badenhop (no relation to Harold Badenhop) began his insurance career in Napoleon and started his own Badenhop Agency. In June of 1989 Glenn also decided to expand into another area, and he purchased the Ivan Sugg agency in Deshler, Ohio. The agency was kept there under the Badenhop-Sugg Agency.
In January of 1993, Joe and Glenn combined their four agencies to begin the Meyer-Badenhop Insurance Agency, Inc., which joined all these agencies under one management.
Since then, Meyer-Badenhop Insurance has continued to grow through the acquisition of other local agencies.
The agency perpetuation continued with the next generation when Greg Badenhop, Glenn’s son, purchased shares in the agency in 2011 and Joe’s son-in-law, Stefan Faerber, purchased shares in 2019. Greg and Stefan are now the co-owners of Meyer-Badenhop Insurance, operating offices in Napoleon, Hamler, Liberty Center, and Leipsic to serve clients throughout Northwest Ohio.
Meyer-Badenhop Insurance believes that insurance is a people business. Building relationships with their clients and companies is the foundation their agency was built upon in 1933, and they will continue to build on that foundation today and tomorrow.
