Cleveland Insurance Agent Commits to Buying American Made Products

CLEVELAND (Jan. 24, 2013) – With unemployment hovering around 8 percent nationally, a Clevelandbased insurance agency is doing its part to ensure the country’s prosperity by buying American made products.

The agent – by Universal Insurance Co. – is Phil Pavarini, Jr., who ran for clerk of courts in the November 2011 election.

“It takes some time and effort, but we can shop American. We can hire American,” Pavarini said. “Every purchase we make – even if it’s a little more money – is money that is invested into our friends, neighbors, communities and country.  Every foreign made purchase we make is money and resources literally thrown away, and we’re left with nothing but landfills of waste.”

Pavarini said he has made a point to order American-made products when purchasing shirts, sweaters, coats, magnets, ink pens and the like for his businesses.  Unlike other local agencies who are outsourcing back office data entry, Pavarini hires local residents so he can provide the best customer service possible.

Along with being an agent of Universal Insurance Co., Pavarini owns CSA Bonding Co., New City Investments, and Cleveland Service Agency, a private investigation firm.  “It’s no secret that big corporations and insurance carriers outsource telephone customer service to developing nations. That frustrates clients and makes it quite difficult to discuss important matters like insurance coverage,” he said.

“Technology allows some small, local, one-person offices to outsource tasks like data entry overseas.  So even if the person who answers the phone is sitting right down the street, your information may be actually processed on the other side of the world.” by Universal Insurance Co. offers clients a wide range of insurance products, including life, home, auto, watercraft, renters, commercial liability as well as contract bonds for construction trades, public officials, auctioneers, courts, landlords, childcare providers and probate bonds.

Headquartered in Parma, Ohio, the agency also has offices in Cleveland. For more information, please visit or call (216) 374-4500.
