About Us

Our History

Slawsby Insurance offices in 1935

Our insurance agency was founded by Archie M. Slawsby in 1935 as the Slawsby Insurance Agency, a one-man office located in downtown Nashua, New Hampshire.

In the 1960s, the Slawsby Insurance Agency was one of the first agencies in the country to automate workflows by mainframe computer.

In 1983, Jon C. Barton acquired majority control of the agency. He formed Minuteman Services, Inc., which serves as the holding company for the member agencies of the Minuteman Group. During the 1980s and 1990s, the agency acquired several books of business and competing agencies.

In 2004, Slawsby Insurance Agency, Inc. became one of the first insurance agencies in NH to go entirely paperless. Shortly thereafter, we began delivering policies via email, saving trees as well as money.

In 2018 Karen Edgerton acquired the agency.  Her vision matches those of her predecessors:

  • Consultative and expedient service delivered in a format which best meets the needs of our client.
  • Staying in touch with our clients throughout the year and not just at renewal time.
  • Being there for our clients at the time of a loss, when we are most needed, and mitigating losses through sound loss control practices.

Though the world has changed a great deal since 1935, and technology has dramatically altered the way we do business, some things never change, like Slawsby Insurance Agency and the Minuteman Group’s old-fashioned, values-based service. Just like the revolutionary minutemen of old, we deliver what we promise: honest value, faithful fast service, and a fierce loyalty to those we are privileged to protect. We are a Trusted Choice for insurance products and services throughout New England and the world.

The vision of Mr. Slawsby is alive and well.
