The Company

If it were just insurance, it wouldn’t be HSB

A long and proud history

The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company (HSB) was founded on June 30, 1866, prompted by the high rate of accidents during the Industrial Revolution. The company’s first president characterized HSB as “the first company in America devoted primarily to industrial safety.”

The company’s engineering expertise and devotion to safety had a profound impact on industry. “Hartford Standards” quickly became the specifications for boiler design, manufacture and maintenance. Now, more than 150 years later, those same values of loss prevention are still at the forefront of much of what we do. The company’s founding premise of dealing with “matters relative to everyday life” is also very much alive in the company’s culture.

A vision for the future

Driven by technology and fueled by innovation, HSB is accelerating, changing the future of specialty insurance and risk solutions to unlock new opportunities for our clients and partners as we build on our strong heritage of engineering expertise and insurance leadership.
