The Company began operating as Philadelphia Insurance Companies in 1987 and continued its expansion across the country. PHLY commemorated its 50th anniversary in 2012, by embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and charitable culture that guided the Company through the years. In celebration on the 50th anniversary, PHLY and its employees also raised more than $400,000 through its PHLYCares campaign for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
