About the Agency
Fetrow Insurance Associates has been providing residents with great insurance products since 1957. We are a third-generation insurance agency whose primary objective is to give you the best possible service.
Family and Education
Fetrow Insurance believes in providing exceptional service with a high level of professionalism and consideration. Ed Fetrow and his two sons, Alan and Grant, who are also principal agents, were all born and raised in central Pennsylvania. They all left to pursue college degrees – Ed at Ohio University, Alan at Penn State University, and Grant at West Virginia University – before returning to their roots. In 2018, Grant moved to Beaver Pa, adding a second location to the agency footprint.
Ed also holds the prestigious Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation and has over 45years of industry experience. Alan has the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation and has over 15 years of experience. Grant has over 12 years of insurance experience. In addition to the three principal agents, Fetrow Insurance Associates boasts a 10-person staff who all take pride in being able to serve their customer’s needs.
Visit our Agency offices, located in Mechanicsburg and Beaver Pennsylvania
Our Mechanicsburg office is located at 5299 E Trindle Rd, next to the Mechanicsburg Support Activity South Gate on East Trindle Road in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The office is located on one of the original farm tracts that the U.S. Government bought in 1941 to build the Mechanicsburg Navy Supply Base. The town’s name originated from the covered wagon mechanics that used to set up shop along Trindle and Simpson Ferry Roads as early as 1811.
Our Beaver office, 381 3rd St, is located blocks from the center of downtown Beaver Pa. The picturesque Borough of Beaver was originally the site of Fort McIntosh and was considered a prime location for a town because of its location at the confluence of the Beaver and Ohio Rivers. The fort was abandoned in 1788 and razed a short time later. By then, the frontier had moved westward and there was no further need for a permanent garrison to protect the area.
At Fetrow Insurance Associates, we are committed to providing our clients with quality personal and business insurance products at affordable prices. You can depend on our staff of caring and conscientious professionals.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be to go to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it’s up to you to make the final choice.
