Salem native Trey Haendiges has opened a new business on the west side of town. Haendiges Insurance Solutions, LLC, opened Nov. 1 at 1104 W. Mulberry Street.
The company sells insurance to protect customers’ home, auto, life and business.
“We offer over a dozen well-known, name brand insurance companies,” said Haendiges. “As a result, we have the ability to choose the company that best meets the changing needs of our customers at a very competitive price.”
He said he does not believe in a “one size fits all” way of thinking.
Although Haendiges Insurance Solutions, LLC is a new start-up, he said it represents several years of direct industry experience and know how.
Haendiges said that while he is a relatively young entrepreneur, his veteran mentors have shown him how to operate a business geared towards taking exceptional care of customers.
“My dad (Ron), and others, is an incredible support system,” he said.
He said he believes small business is the backbone of the country and feels it is a blessing to live in a country that allows one to have the freedom to start a business with relative simplicity.
“This does not mean that it’s easy, however,” he said.
Haendiges said that every business must be all about the customer.
“If you don’t take care of your customer, someone else will,” he said. “Our company’s motto is ‘taking care of people through meaningful relationships.’”
He said he works hard live up to this by getting to understand customer needs.
“Our customer is our primary consideration in all we do,” he said.
Haendiges said he strives to do all things with excellence and although the business only has one physical location in Salem, he can protect and insure people throughout Indiana.
“Technology has made this much easier than it once was,” he said. “We expect to eventually expand physical locations throughout Indiana and the Midwest.”
Haendiges works on his own at the time, but expects to expand in the near future.
