Brief History

Gateway Underwriters Agency was first founded in Maryland Heights, Missouri, in 1954. The company began as a privately-owned insurance company and soon grew to offer not only a wider variety of insurance solutions, but also to license franchises across the state.

In 1967, the majority stake in the company was acquired when Berkshire Hathaway purchased National Indemnity Company. The move was the first branch into insurance for Berkshire. Since then, Gateway Underwriters has continued to expand and grow to offer multiple franchise locations.
