Financially Sound Business

Having the proper insurance coverage is crucial to running a responsible and financially sound business. A. Horn Inc goes above and beyond the standard insurance practices. They are placing their contractual responsibilities with “A” rated carriers by AMBEST and carry limits well above industry averages. More importantly they excel in industry safety measures that give them the opportunity to keep their insurance costs to a minimum. I can attest that they are best in class in the Masonry field. This offers their customers cost savings in areas that are priceless.
