History

Hay-Subpage-History-Masthead-700x180

Haylor, Freyer & Coon was founded in 1928 by Burnett (Barney) E. Haylor and James McLusky as a local four-person insurance agency. From these humble beginnings, Haylor has grown steadily into a national agency. Today, we are a top 100 independently owned insurance agency in the United States with a reputation as a proven leader. A lot has changed in the more than eight decades we’ve been in business, but our core principles remain the same. We are dedicated to the well-being of our employees, and to providing insurance and risk management solutions with distinctive and exceptional service.

Timeline

1920s Burnett (Barney) E. Haylor was a young insurance salesman when his father, a district chief with the Syracuse Fire Department, died of smoke inhalation. Afterwards, other fire chiefs allowed Barney to visit various firehouses to write personal insurance for firefighters.
1928 The agency was founded by Haylor and James McLusky as a small four-person agency in the Herald Building at 332 S. Warren Street.
1930s A single interest collision and “skip” auto insurance was developed for the Merchants National Bank and Trust Co. which allowed the bank to provide direct loans to auto buyers.
1946 After Jim McLusky passed away, Barney Haylor partnered with Raymond G. Haun to form McLusky, Haylor & Haun. The two were then joined by Clayton F. Freyer and Burnett (Bud) D. Haylor
1950s Douglas Coon joined the agency. The agency began specializing in life, medical and income protection insurance, both individual and group policies.
1954 Under the leadership of Ray Haun and Clayton Freyer, the agency launched a program to insure mobile homes, providing commercial and personal insurance coverage to mobile homeowners and dealers.
1970s The agency, by then known as Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Inc expanded and established departments to cover engineering services and transportation insurance.
