Rothenberger Insurance, Wenrich Associates combine

Two Berks County insurance agencies, one old and one relatively new, now share the same West Reading location.

Rothenberger Insurance Services LLC, which had been on Penn Avenue in West Lawn since Ron Rothenberger founded it in 2007, has moved in with Wenrich Associates Inc. at the latter’s longtime home at 436 Penn Ave. Now owned by Charles F. Wenrich, Wenrich Associates has been in the building since Robert C. Wenrich Sr. founded the company in 1953.

“Knowing both businesses have the same philosophy, to help businesses and individuals in finding the right insurance at the best value, it only seemed natural to combine the two insurance businesses,” the companies say in a statement.

While the two will share a building, they remain separate companies. But the statement said the pair now can offer more provider choices to their customers because of the combined location.

Both are independent insurance agencies that sell residential and commercial insurance products from a range of companies.
