Southern Pioneer Property & Casualty Insurance Company was formed in 1981 in Trumann, Arkansas. Our primary focus in our early years was providing credit-related coverages for banks and furniture dealers. In 1992, we began writing License Bonds and Garage Liability Insurance for Non-Franchised Automobile Dealers in Arkansas. Over the years, we have expanded our geographic territory for these programs to include Tennessee, Missouri, Alabama and Texas. In 2003, we began offering Dwelling Property and Homeowners coverage in Tennessee, and we expanded this product to Arkansas in 2012.
Since starting the business in 1981 in Trumann Arkansas, Southern Pioneer Property & Casualty Insurance Company has grown from $500,000 in capital and surplus and zero premium to over $18,000,000 capital and surplus with written premium in excess of $24,000,000 in 2015. In 2007, we moved our home office from Trumann, Arkansas, to our current location in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
