Working with dedicated groups and specialty underwriters, we have access to specialty programs and competitive pricing for printers and graphic communications businesses.

PINE’s insurance partner did a nice job analyzing our insurance needs and giving us a proposal that offered better coverage with over 10% annual savings on our entire commercial book of insurance at Flagship. Jeff Poor

Employee Benefits

Health Insurance is an especially challenging topic for which we offer creative and partially self-insured approaches with a range of carriers, which provides large savings on benefits costs. In addition to our own in house services, we have partnered with Partners’ Benefit Group (PBG), a Comprehensive Benefits Administrators (CBA) company to assure that the most cost effective packages and services (compliance, legal and HR or COBRA Administration) are available to all PINE member companies. We can design a program specifically created for your needs while offering flexible choices with cost control for member companies for:


  • Health
  • Dental
  • Group Life
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)
  • Short-term and Long-term Disability
  • 401(k) retirement plans
The staff at PINE are like an extension of our management team. Their evaluation of our insurance costs and recommendations saved us valuable time and money. I look forward to consulting with PINE on additional purchasing areas and opportunities for savings that can be re-invested back into our business. Michael Peluso

President, Shawmut Communications Group
