Patton Chesnut Binder Insurance has been serving clients in the London, Laurel County, and the surrounding areas for several decades. In the 1930's R.V. Yandall opened the very first insurance agency that is now known as the current PCB Insurance. Although it has changed hands a few times, the current location has been the same since the 1960's.
How do you go from owning five and dime stores in London and Jackson County to selling insurance? That would have been a good question for Clarence Patton, who sold his five and dime stores to join Tom Craft and John Bruner in the insurance business in the 1950's to create the Craft - Patton Agency.
The current Patton Chesnut Binder Insurance was incorporated in 1972 by Patton, Keith Chesnut, and Keith Binder, and is a trusted and respected, independent insurance agency in our community. PCB Insurance is currently owned by the second generation of agents, Melvin Chesnut and Rocky Binder, continued the tradition of their parents providing outstanding service and protection to our community for many years. In 2021 PCB merged with Acrisure Insurance which was designated the # 1 insurance agency of the Top 100 Property and Casualty Agencies of 2022 by Insurance Journal . Rocky Binder is the current agency principal since January of 2021 and continues to run the agency with the same values and principles that have made us a successful and trusted household name in our community.
PCB Insurance employs nine hard working, loyal people, with most employees having been with the agency from ten to twenty years, contributing greatly to the success of our agency. Our role is not just providing information, but helping clients identify the best insurance coverage for your needs.
