History

The beginnings of the agency date back to 1938 when J.M. Badertscher, then principal of Sebring McKinley High School, purchased a small insurance agency. The J.M. Badertscher Insurance Agency was joined by Gail Williams, brother-in-law to Mr. Badertscher, in 1945. Mr. Badertscher would eventually leave to return to administration at the high school. 

On March 1, 1946, Ernest L. Case joined Mr. Williams to form Williams and Case Insurance Agency. They eventually incorporated. In 1969, the agency moved to a more central location in Sebring. With each year came premium volume growth and more business.

Many smaller area agencies were bought by the expanding corporation. Company co-founder E.L. Case retired in 1979. In 1982, G.W. Williams retired and his duties as president were taken by Bill Williams.

In 1984, computers were first purchased for bookkeeping and marketing. Later in 1989, the agency moved once again to its present location at 60 S. 15th Street. The next year, by buying another area insurance agency, Williams and Case became one of the area's largest. 

James Williams joined summer of 2000 making the agency span three generations. The corporation continues to look for new opportunities to expand through purchasing other area agencies.
