Overview of the Company
Holyoke Mutual Insurance Company, widely known by the brand name MiddleOak is an insurance company located in Salem, MA. The MiddleOak trade name comprises two insurance companies, Holyoke Mutual Insurance Company as well as Middlesex Assurance Company. However, previously, the two companies were separately operated companies, only brought together by the merger. While Holyoke Mutual was established in 1843, the Middlesex Mutual was founded in 1836. So currently, the MiddleOak logo has become more popular than one of its company compositions, but still, Holyoke is within the umbrella and in some areas, the name is still embraced.
