TCOR Surety Bonds specializes in surety programs for select industries. We focus our energy and talents in the construction, municipal solid waste, oil & gas, property management and legal / banking industries. We don’t try to be all things to all people; instead we try to be the best in the industry at our primary areas of focus. Many agencies try to spread themselves across a very broad spectrum of surety opportunities, without going in depth in any particular specialty. At TCOR, we focus only on our core competencies to provide the best service possible to our clients.

With more than 70 years of combined surety experience on our team, we believe our backgrounds in various fields help us understand and relate to our clients’ unique business and service needs. Understanding the unique needs of each client is the cornerstone of building great relationships between the client, agent and surety carriers.  We believe that our diversity and industry awareness gives us the ability to successfully handle all of your surety needs.

Our firm enjoys the challenges of creating surety opportunities for clients that fit in all ranges of surety needs; from an up-and-coming contractor needing his first bond to waste haulers with contracts across the United States, to the large international construction and service firms with backlog’s approaching $1 billion, to commercial surety programs for national law firms. Where others see problems, we see opportunities to prove our value to our client as their business partner. TCOR Surety Bonds  has the right combination of hands-on experience and in-depth market knowledge to serve your surety needs. We believe that our creativity in program design and implementation allows us to develop the best solutions for the most difficult bonding situations.

TCOR Surety Bonds maintains relationships with every major surety carrier in the marketplace, as well as key specialty surety markets. We maintain a solid book of business that allows us access to the broad range of current surety partner options, but also to the emerging and high-growth new surety marketplace. We stay in constant communication with all parts of the surety marketplace to keep abreast of both contract and commercial surety trends and market changes. We believe that these efforts are paramount to finding the right surety partners for our clients.

Learning the goals and requirements of our client’s business plan, and how surety can play a role in that plan, is of utmost importance to our firm. Understanding how surety plays into the overall business plan is critical to choosing the right surety carrier team(s). Once we understand all of the dynamics of our client’s surety program, we can then suggest the best possible service solutions.
