From that momentous day in 1922 when G.J. Mecherle sold his first auto policy, we’ve always been there for our customers. Use the timeline and learn more about State Farm through the years.
Retired farmer and insurance salesman George Jacob “G.J.” Mecherle founded State Farm in 1922. His motivation was simple: to be fair and do the right thing for his customers.
The first State Farm Road Atlas was published in 1937. Ever since then, we’ve helped people get where they want to go.
We’re #1. Our reign as the nation’s top auto insurer began in 1942, and we’ve remained #1 every year since
In 1971, a relatively unknown composer wrote the music for our new theme song “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” His name? Barry Manilow.
Recognizing that our customers expected great service around the clock, we created Customer Response Centers to deliver help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Statefarm.com went live in 1995. Today, customers use statefarm.com to get rate quotes, check claims, find an agent, plan for retirement, pay bills, and more.
We made high-octane history in 2006, becoming the first property and casualty insurer ever to help promote a major feature film: the Disney/Pixar animated feature, CARS.
In 2002, State Farm went green. We started measuring our greenhouse gas emissions, and we added hybrid and flex fuel cars to our company fleet. By 2008, we had reduced our emissions intensity by 46%, more than double the goal we set for 2012.
