About Mettler Agency Inc

The Mettler Agency Inc is an independent insurance agency founded in 1950 by Joseph and Theresa Mettler, grandparents of the current principals. Our business roots are in the life and health insurance arena. Through the guidance of John F. “Jack” Mettler and sibling Patrick J. Mettler, the agency has grown into the full-service operation it is today. Through planned perpetuation, Jack’s sons Thomas and David are the current principals.

The agency conducts its work with the ideal of treating all people – employees, clients, insurance company personnel and prospects – respectfully and professionally. It is our moral obligation always to do what is right for the people we serve and allow their needs to dictate our actions and decisions. Further, we wish always to work in an atmosphere of trust and friendship so the workplace is an enjoyable place for all.
