The origins of KROSE can be traced back to the Bremen raw tobacco importer Meyer & Krose, founded by Otto von Meyer and Wilhelm Krose in 1854.

Wilhelm Krose’s son Friedrich took over the company in 1885. He started the insurance business as managing agent, i.e. as authorized underwriting agency. His sons continued the business since 1920, trading under the name of GEBRÜDER KROSE.

After taking on partners from outside the family in the 1960s, KROSE established and focused on industrial insurance.

Today, KROSE is a highly specialized company with international clients and special expertise in the customization and placement of world-wide insurance programs. KROSE has been growing continuously for many years in contrast to current trends. Contributing to this success is our focus on core business areas, our reputation and the education and training of our specialized staff as well as our technical infrastructure.


Continuity in times of transition –
this is our maxim.
