Celebrating Shea’s 66th Anniversary


C.A. Shea is pleased to announce the celebration of our 66th year this past December as a leading intermediary broker specializing in the placement and administration of U.S. Customs bonds. A family owned and operated business incorporated in 1945, we are proud to say that members of the fourth generation of the family are now working for the company.

As an independent broker, Shea has established partnering relationships with many of the top tier carriers in the insurance business, including CNA, Travelers, Liberty Mutual, ACE Surety, Zurich Insurance, Argo Surety and others. Our success, however, could not have been achieved without the long and successful relationships we have established with the brokerage community, who have come to recognize our expertise is this unique specialty market. We appreciate the opportunities to work with brokers on a day to day basis, assisting them with their client’s Customs bond needs. Our founder Cornelius A. Shea and his wife Gertrude coined the term “Courtesy & Service” which is a principal we strive to accomplish every day. Along with our years of experience, knowledge of the Customs bonding process, interaction with Customs and technical capabilities, we provide the highest level of service and broad access to surety markets not available through other Customs bond providers.

Thanks to all the brokers who utilize our services and we look forward to offering our “Courtesy and Service” on Customs bonds for the years to come.
