unnamedPhoenix American Warranty Company Inc. has reached an important milestone, marking 30 years of service to dealers, agents and financial institutions throughout the country.

In the 30 years since the Phoenix American has been in business, it has grown to be one of the largest independent vehicle service contract and GAP Waiver providers in the United States. According to a press release, the company currently has 85 employees and is headquartered in a 21,500-square-foot, state-of the-art administrative service center located in Miami, Fla.

“Since 1985, we have grown to be one of the largest independent service contract administrators in the United States,” Phoenix American President and CEO Steve Brooks said. “Our success, although measured by underwriting results, is really defined by our staff of hard working, caring employees who epitomize the entrepreneurial spirit of our company.”

Phoenix American has built its business, which includes over $1 billion in claims paid, by working in partnership with the Nationwide Insurance group, one of the largest and highest rated financial service companies in America. All service contract programs written or administered by Phoenix American are 100% insured by the Nationwide Insurance group.

“Our strong industry presence is a result of our conservative management style, experienced underwriters, excellent marketing associates and outstanding insurance partners,” Brooks said. “As we celebrate our 30 years of service in the service contract industry we are mindful that our success is due in no small measure to our association with some of the finest dealers, sales representatives and lenders in the … service contract industry.”
