The Gasoline and Service Dealers of America, Inc., the extension of the original Association started in 1956, is pleased to announce it has picked Irongate Insurance Counselors, LLC, as its #1 Recommended Vendor for Property / Casualty insurance firm for the members of the Association and industry.

Nick Ververis, President of Irongate Insurance, states “we could not be more excited about aligning our strong insurance carrier resources and products with such a fine organization here in our state, working with Executive Director Michael J. Fox, has been a pleasure and it is quite apparent to us at Irongate why and how the GASDA organization is so effective in its mission to serve the gasoline, convenience, and auto repair industries”.

Irongate Insurance Counselors, LLC., based in Canton, CT, has experienced unprecedented growth over the past decade serving all types of commercial businesses across New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeastern US. In addition to the commercial insurance agency, Irongate Insurance wholly owns Alternative Risk Administrators, LLC, a national third-party claim, and risk management firm based in Fountain Hills, AZ. Irongate Insurance employs former underwriters, claims, and risk managers and can successfully assist with everything from the single location convenience store to the multi-state, national public company.

Nick Ververis further states “simply put, our sole business mission is providing the most fiscally sound and economically advantageous business insurance solutions in place for our customers. Serving our customers tirelessly has earned us national recognition among our top insurance carriers and growth of 1000% over the past decade, and we are just warming up”.

Michael Fox stated, “we are really excited for this partnership and for our members. The industry has gone through many changes over the past 8 to 10 years and we had to make a tough decision to stop doing business with our former #1 Recommended Vendor as replacing vendors in this industry is near to impossible due to the environmental liabilities our industry faces on a day to day basis. In addition, along with the unique situation that a large number of our members are 24-hours further adding to the complication of providing workers compensation at competitive rates for our members. Irongate has jumped in headfirst and filed that gap with prompt, competitive service and pricing for our members”. We put together a small group of retailers to see the before and after pricing and the savings have been dramatic, to say the least.
