Buy ABI

The Buy ABI program helps foster business relationships in Iowa while providing customized benefits to help ABI members succeed. 

As owner and president of Keystone Electrical Manufacturing in Des Moines, Fred Buie doesn’t have time to become an expert on loss prevention. Fortunately, Keystone takes part in EMC Insurance’s Manufacturers Insurance Program, which offers added coverages and support to ABI member companies.

“We have the coverage and service we need as a manufacturer — all with a preferred rate because we’re an ABI member,” Buie said.

How can Buy ABI partners help your business? To learn more about the Buy ABI affinity program and how your company can get involved contact Kathy Anderson, 515-235-0575.
