MORTON — Nothing has changed and everything has changed for one of the village’s best-known businesses.

That contradictory statement accurately describes Kuhl Insurance Agency’s merger with HUB International, the world’s fifth-largest insurance broker.

Kuhl Insurance celebrated its 43th year in Morton in February.

It became a division of HUB International on March 1, about six months after it selected the Chicago-based firm from among six possible merger candidates.

In merging with HUB International and becoming part of the HUB Midwest West division, Kuhl Insurance joined the ranks of nearly 2,300 independent insurance agencies across the country that have joined forces with larger agencies the past three years.

Without merger, ‘vulnerable to competition’

In Kuhl Insurance’s case, said President Mike Kuhl, it didn’t want to lose employees or its identity of being a local boutique insurance agency that provides commercial and personal insurance and employee benefits services, or stop being a supporter of community events and causes because of a merger.
