We have entrusted our insurance needs to New Gate for over 20 years. They have helped us manage our growth and have helped with creative ways to engage employees. New Gate has especially helped us take care of our employee safety training, and with our compliance with OSHA.  Over the years,  New Gate has kept us in compliance with OSHA with documents and training.  Our supervisor's communication has improved and we are a stronger company.  New Gate has been great!

I really enjoy working with the New Gate team. It's like night and day compared with our former insurance provider. They're always willing to help with anything that comes up, and they're friendly and good at explaining things that are otherwise incomprehensible to someone who doesn't speak "Insurance-ese." Craig has been out several times to our farm to give safety meetings. He has a great presentation style, his Spanish is excellent and our crew enjoys these meetings as well as learning so much from them. I learn from them too. I recommend this company without reserve.

New Gate Insurance has been our trusted insurance provider for over 15 years. We can count on them to provide competitive rates and exceptional service for all our insurance coverages. When our company endured major wind damage they went above and beyond to help us with the claim and secure a settlement. Despite pushback from the insurance company, they handled the entire situation professionally and efficiently. Matt has truly worked hard to earn our continued business and we can rest easy knowing that Matt and the New Gate team are here to support us with any and all of our insurance needs.

We are really happy to be working with New Gate. The Safety Trainings are especially helpful in keeping us compliant with OSHA, and Craig’s presentations are really good. It’s great that he can speak Spanish and directly support our Supervisors with training that keeps us compliant. The compliancy inspections and the safety App that tracks our employees required trainings are a great step forward for us.

The service from New Gate has been amazing for our company! They are very helpful and have great customer service; when I call, I always get someone who can help me right away, and get my questions fully answered. We are creating and implementing a whole new HR structure, and the HR Support Center we get through New Gate has been instrumental for us. I just can’t say enough good things about New Gate! You guys are awesome!

It is important for our business to have an insurance partner we can trust and who understands the risks of our manufacturing process. New Gate has been our steadfast partner since the early 1990’s, soon after our business opened. Through every challenge over the years, New Gate has come through for us, with prompt, superior customer service. It is reassuring to know they are looking out for things we can’t see.
