Foremost Insurance Company was founded back in 1952 by Edward J. Frey and Edward L. Stoddard. Their aim was not to compete with big auto and home insurers, but to provide much needed coverage to people living in mobile homes. In fact, the first mobile home insurance policy was created by Foremost.
Foremost Insurance Group didn’t just pioneer mobile home insurance, they were also extremely influential in developing modern safety standards for mobile homes. Throughout the 1960's, the company helped to improve the mobile home's resistance to strong winds, creating a safer mobile home.
