Home » About Our Agency

Your family, your business, and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance advisor.

Where it all began.

With roots dating back to 1991, our agency began as The Insurance Center of Akron, primarily selling Erie Insurance. Founder Paul Janos initially got his start at Guardian Auto Glass and later with State Farm. Later realizing the value and flexibility he could provide his clients, Paul left to open an independent insurance agency. Throughout the years, Akron Insurance has grown and adapted to a changing insurance landscape.

Present-day and progression.

Today, Akron Insurance has been successfully operating for over 25 years. We have partnered with top-rated insurance providers and offer a broad range of personal insurance, business insurance, and employee benefits solutions to our Ohio community. We work here, we live here, we play here, and therefore, we understand you best.

Trusted and treasured partnerships.

Akron Insurance has maintained a strong relationship with Erie Insurance since its opening. ERIE is a competitive Fortune 500 company that instills the golden rule in the way they do business. Their mission aligns with the focus of our everyday goals—that is “to provide our policyholders with as near perfect protection, as near perfect service as is humanly possible and to do so at the lowest possible cost.”
