We founded The Mechanic Group in 1989 to offer Security Guard companies an alternative to insurance with high rates and premiums, along with specific kinds of coverage that simply weren't available at the time. In August 2019, The Mechanic Group was acquired by Specialty Program Group (SPG), the 8th largest underwriting platform. Joining the SPG team has given us valuable resources to create additional insurance products and programs for the markets we support.

Following are 10 reasons we are the leading private security insurance provider to Security Guard, Private Investigation, Intelligence, Electronic Security, Alarm Installation, Alarm Monitoring and Security Consulting firms. We are also the leading MGA for agents and brokers seeking a market for these insureds.
