Our Story

Going Strong Since 1947

Our roots run deep in South Texas. Borden Insurance was founded in 1947 to provide professional, commercial insurance solutions for our community. Over the past 70 years, our team has grown to more than 40 industry professionals with nearly 1,000 years of combined industry experience. Today, Borden Insurance is part of the Higginbotham Insurance Group, which is comprised of regional offices that combine resources and expertise to provide a single source solution for commercial and personal coverage, employee benefits, retirement plans, life insurance and executive benefits through broad market representation.

Whether they’re for your business, employees or family, Borden Insurance can serve your regional and global needs as a Higginbotham company. Together, we’re one of the largest independent insurance firms in the nation, yet our local concentration keeps us accessible.

In fact, we’re always by your side. Getting you covered is just what we do on day one. Through Higginbotham, we can support you on day two and every day after. It’s what we call Day Two Services® because we deliver everything you need to limit your risks, manage your plans and control your costs throughout the term of your insurance policies.
