HASTINGS, MI--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) -  Hastings Mutual Insurance Company, a regional Property Casualty insurance organization serving six states in the Midwest, is celebrating with their agencies, employees and community. The cause for this occasion is their milestone 125th Anniversary. Hastings Mutual is known as a financially solid, customer focused organization that maintains their Midwest values while offering world-class commercial, farm and personal insurance products.

Recognizing the importance of strong relationships in the Company's long history, Hastings Mutual will spend this year in appreciation to agent partners, former and current employees and private individuals who have played a role in the development of their business. The official kick-off will be on April 5, 2010, which marks the anniversary of the incorporation day dating back to 1885.

Dan Hill, Vice-President of Marketing at Hastings Mutual, comments, "We are excited to spend this year remembering our proud past. We were a company built from incomparable values and we maintain our spirit of quality, responsibility and customer service. I am proud to say that today we are stronger than ever before. And, we look forward to an exciting future, which includes geographic expansion, technology enhancements and continued agency focus."

Hastings Mutual recently introduced Iowa as the sixth state where they work exclusively through independent agents to write property and casuality insurance. This development highlights the 125 year old Company's focus on measured growth and financial responsibility. Only 13 percent of property and casualty companies reach a century old (according to the Insurance Information Institute), and Hastings Mutual has readily surpassed that mark.
