Our Story

Going Strong Since 1947

Our roots run deep in South Texas. Lew Borden founded Borden Insurance 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, the agency provides Property & Casualty, Employee Benefits, and Personal Lines insurance to businesses and families across the great state of Texas and beyond.
