Since 1948, the Dale Barton Agency has provided construction specific Insurance and Surety Bonds throughout the Intermountain West. As one of the region’s largest Surety Bond and Insurance agencies, the company provides coverage and sound advice to general contractors, subcontractors, specialty contractors and diverse businesses alike. The Dale Barton Agency is recognized as one of the premier surety agencies in the country because of its integrity, ethics, knowledge, market relationships, dedication and service.

Sam Clark,President of the Dale Barton Agency and founder Dale Barton’s son-in-law, says, “the Agency’s strengths are found in our experienced and dedicated team, and our commitment to professional personalized service. The Dale Barton Agency’s surety and insurance staff are comprised of industry experts that have the knowledge and expertise to handle contractors’ diverse and complex needs.”

In 1947, Eliot Dale Barton received his MBA from Columbia University. Following graduation Mr. Barton sold construction machinery and taught as a faculty member at the University of Utah School of Business. In response to a need for quality insurance and surety bonding the Dale Barton Agency was founded.

In the beginning Mr. Barton started with an army surplus desk, a typewriter, and a desire to make a difference. Since then, Mr. Barton and the Dale Barton Agency have worked to build a reputation that is known throughout the industry. While many things have changed, the Dale Barton Agency still operates with a desire to make a positive difference for its clients with integrity and the highest ethical standards.

The Dale Barton Agency understands contractors need an agent/broker who is well versed with the unique needs of construction companies; budgets, schedules, and bid-day deadlines. Contractors need access to the leading carriers specializing in construction risk in order to maintain a competitive edge. The Dale Barton Agency is committed to its mission ‘...to provide customers with quality Insurance and Surety products, which are competitively priced, with prompt, friendly and professional service.’ Relationships matter!

At the Dale Barton Agency, we are proud of the fact that for the last 63 years the company's reputation has been firm and solid, “serving clients with integrity and hard work while offering the best experience in the industry.” As Sam Clark says, “Our word is our bond. We partner with people who do what they say and say what they do. The Dale Barton Agency truly takes a team approach to business, where service is provided to each customer by many individuals. The Dale Barton Agency’s insurance and surety bond products and risk management services continue to be cornerstones of financial security and peace of mind.”
