Allied Building Material Agency (ABM) is a member company of the Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Group (PLM). ABM was incorporated in 1935 as an insurance brokerage affiliated with Indiana Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company. When PLM acquired ILM in 2013, ABM was a part of the deal, but operation of the agency had waned and lay dormant, until 2020.
ABM officially re-opened for business in January 2020 as a wholesale brokerage and program business placement specialist in the wood products niche. The activation of ABM allows us to work with PLM Underwriters and Business Development staff to round new and existing PLM accounts by placing Workers’ Compensation, Property, Casualty, Commercial Auto & Umbrella exposures, among others, with carriers with whom PLM/ABM shares a similar commitment to the wood industry, its business owners and their employees.
Although we are a brokerage, we remain a proud part of the PLM Group. We are fully committed to serving the wood niche and cultivating the relationships with our existing and future retail broker partners. Our mission is to make sure that our insureds have the most comprehensive insurance program in place to make them whole in the event of a loss. Through ABM, we are able to offer new options, new services, and new possibilities. We can’t wait to share them with our valued producers.
