We see opportunities rather than obstacles

Solid’s early history is a healthy period of lessons and insights, setbacks and successes. We had worked for some time as an insurance representative for a major insurance company when, during a board meeting in 1993, we finally realised that we could do it ourselves. Perhaps even better.

Finding our niche

The founders of the company had discovered a vacant niche in the insurance market, namely policies that strengthen consumers’ purchasing security for capital goods. Extending the warranty period by three, five or seven years was almost revolutionary at that time. Since then, Solid Försäkring has been a rapidly growing company. Challenges and successes have meant that we have grown and developed in an optimal way for customers and colleagues. Long-standing relationships with our partners, agents and, particularly important, policyholders themselves show that our offering is in high demand.

In a strong spirit of entrepreneurship, we prefer to see opportunities rather than obstacles. We stimulate our own growth and generate our own momentum with the attitude that nothing is impossible.
