How we began
DAC was established in 1935 by the Youngstown Sheet & Tube Company as Mahoning Insurance Company. It was one of the first captive insurance companies ever formed. In 1980, Mahoning was renamed Dealers Assurance Company.
Before we became iA American, we were two leading F&I providers and one "A" rated insurance company: Innovative Aftermarket Systems (IAS), SouthwestRe, and Dealers Assurance Company (DAC), respectively.
