Contract Surety bonds are a highly specialized segment of the “property and casualty” insurance industry, and most insurance agents don’t really understand how to effectively provide these bonds to contractors and other commercial clients.
Penn Western Bonding was formed to provide superior bonding products and services to contractors and other commercial clients in western Pennsylvania. Penn Western only provides bonding products, and the agency does not participate in other lines of commercial insurance, such as workers’ compensation, general liability, and auto. In this way, Penn Western can put all of its focus and resources towards the contract surety bond needs of its clients.
Penn Western Bonding was founded by Russ Gibson, well-known in the bonding community of western Pennsylvania as an honest and hard-working bond producer. Russ brings more than 40+ years of bonding expertise to the relationship with his contractor clients. Russ has provided contract surety bonds for many of the region’s major construction projects, including numerous road and bridge projects for the PA Dept. of Transportation and the PA Turnpike Commission, large infrastructure projects such as Pittsburgh International Airport, Pittsburgh Convention Center, and US Army Corps of Engineers locks and dams, and hundreds of building projects for school districts, county and municipal facilities, sewer and water authorities, developers and state and federal governments.
Penn Western Bonding represents several of the leading surety companies in the U.S., and are financially secure and U.S. Treasury-listed. In this way, Penn Western can provide a stable line of bond products and bond capacity to its clients.
