Allied Insurance was formed in 1929, and for a long time operated as a small, but successful insurance company. In 1998 Allied merged with a larger insurance provider, Nationwide, and now all of Allied’s operations are under the name Nationwide. Through this merging, Allied was able to reach a much larger group of people, and expand their clientele.
