For businesses of all sizes and specialties
When running a business, you are always on the clock, always on call and always available, which is exactly the way you want it to be.
No matter what industry you are part of—construction, manufacturing, restaurant, health care, automotive, agriculture, telecommunications, financial services or consumer goods and services—there are rewarding days and challenging days. Even so, you couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
Whether you’ve been in business for months, years or decades, you know that being prepared for the unexpected is an important part of a strong strategy. Although you’ve taken steps to minimize losses and injuries at your business, some incidents are beyond your control.

For projects big and small
Every business owner knows how important it is to complete projects on time, within budget and as promised. With every successful project, you are building a solid reputation for your business, as well as increasing your customer base.
Today, many businesses are required to secure a surety bond before beginning a project, especially in the construction industry. A surety bond acts as a promise of performance or payment if a business fails to fulfill its obligation.
At UFG, we have a solid reputation for upholding our customers’ promises, without holding up their jobs. In addition to our financial strength and trustworthiness, we provide a simple submission process and fast turnaround time on surety bond requests.
Our complete line of surety bonds includes:
- Contract Bonds
- Janitorial/Business Service Bonds
- Judicial Bonds
- License and Permit Bonds
- Public Official Bonds
When you need to secure a surety bond, choose UFG Surety for your bonding needs.
