Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company (PLM) is approaching its 125th year in business, with no signs of slowing down. The Philadelphia-based insurer of wood-related risks, from lumber and building material dealers to hardware stores to furniture manufacturers, has long been committed to investing in new technology, employees' careers, and the local community.
Formed in 1895, the company was created by a group of lumber dealers and woodworkers who sought quality, affordable insurance for businesses in their industry. Having grown through the Great Depression, recessions and wars, the company has learned that maintaining a motivated and dedicated workforce is key to operating a profitable business.
Over the years, management has looked toward the future, with new technologies automating services between policyholders and the PLM team. At the same time, PLM has invested in its employees, incentivizing professional development and continuing education. They also bring the PLM community closer together with a culture dedicated to charitable giving and volunteerism.
