Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Orwigsburg, PA, The Seltzer Group is an independent insurance agency offering a comprehensive suite of insurance solutions. The company’s product suite includes disaster recovery services, workers’ compensation claim management, risk management programs, health and wellness programs, human resources consulting and benefit portfolio financial planning programs, as well as a full line of personal insurance products.
