About Us

In the 1920’s the Harleysville Mutual Insurance Company contracted with Hershey & Gibbel for their services as Managing General Agents. This relationship grew and prospered for over 60 years.

Ethan Gibbel, President

While serving the Lititz community, the Hershey & Gibbel local insurance agency developed into a professional, full service, independent insurance office. In 1993 the Hershey & Gibbel partnership was dissolved and Gibbel Insurance Agency, Inc was formed.  Jim Gibbel was the managing partner at Gibbel Insurance 1963 to 2010 when his son Ethan began managing the agency. 

Our home-grown business vision is led by Ethan Gibbel who represents the fourth generation of the agency and our intent to remain locally owned and locally committed to you and the community for generations to come.

Gibbel Insurance Agency, Inc has grown and expanded our services and products since it originated in 1890, but our underlying philosophy is the same: We strive to provide personalized service, customized coverage, and competitive prices to the Lancaster County area.
