In 1991, several local agencies combined to form SWVA Insurance Services to help obtain company contracts and offer the best companies available. Insurance Center of Abingdon was a startup agency by this group of agents to begin offering service locally to the residents of the Abingdon area. In 1997, the name changed from SWVA Insurance Services to Insurance Center of Abingdon. 

Today, Insurance Center of Abingdon remains a SWVA Insurance Services company. It is owned by three agencies; Slemp Brant Saunders in Marion, VA, CR Pate & Co in St. Paul, VA, and Lebanon Insurance Agency in Lebanon, VA. The owners of these agencies combine years of insurance experience with a love for the industry to offer continued service by our team of local agents.
