American Commerce Insurance Company Undergoes New Branding Efforts as “A MAPFRE Company”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COLUMBUS, OH (May 9, 2009) - Today American Commerce Insurance Company (ACIC) announced plans to strategically align company branding efforts with that of MAPFRE, displaying the financial strength and stability gained from MAPFRE’s acquisition of The Commerce Group, Inc. in June 2008.
“American Commerce Insurance is proud to have become a part of MAPFRE,” said Jeff Alexander, Vice President of Marketing. “By recognizing American Commerce as ‘A MAPFRE Company’ we demonstrate our commitment to uphold the strong values of providing consistent and superior products, state-of-the-art technology and a world-class customer experience for both our agency partners and customers alike.”
As part of its efforts to align with the MAPFRE brand, American Commerce will introduce a new logo which includes the wording ‘A MAPFRE COMPANY’.

American Commerce’s new logo will be launched in phases, beginning with its consumer website, www.acilink.com. Additional brand enhancements will be introduced through corporate advertising and marketing initiatives throughout the year.
