Celebr ating 100 years of business
Weizenegger-Engel (W&E) Insurance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Federated Insurance and a sister company to Primary Source
Insurance (PSI). Federated purchased W&E in 2004 as a way to diversify its book of business. W&E agents are licensed in all states
except for Hawaii, New Hampshire, Alaska, and Vermont. However, the company mainly services the Brainerd Lakes area.
And now a century later — W&E celebrated 100 years of business in 2021 — lets take a look at the history of this great organization.
After emigrating to the United States from Norway, Anton M.
(A.M.) Opsahl worked as a photographer in Brainerd, Minnesota,
prior to forming Opsahl Insurance, the predecessor to what
would become Weizenegger-Engel InsuranceSM.
