BUCYRUS, OH – Almost exactly 50 years from the date that the building’s original cornerstone was laid, Ohio Mutual Insurance Group has begun a comprehensive interior renovation project at the company’s 44,000 square foot Home Office at 1725 Hopley Ave., in Bucyrus.

The project’s objectives include:

  • creating capacity within our Bucyrus office for the next decade of projected employment growth
  • creating a more modern, appealing office environment for current and future associates
  • upgrading the building’s heating, cooling, and fire safety systems
  • increasing meeting space and upgrading conferencing technology
  • optimizing space use and department adjacencies, and
  • improving building safety.

The year-long self-financed project is expected to be completed by April, 2019 at an estimated total cost of $5 million.
WSA Studio of Columbus, OH is the project’s architect, and construction is being managed by Columbus-based Gilbane Building Co. Other participating contractors include Vaughn Industries (HVAC) of Carey, OH and S.A. Comunale Co. (fire safety) of Marion, OH.

“On June 8, 1968, leaders of this company and our community dedicated the cornerstone for the first wing of our current building to be built on this site,” said Ohio Mutual President & CEO Mark C. Russell, “and now our campus is once again being transformed. This renovation project is an affirmation of Ohio Mutual’s continued commitment to our hometown community, our business partners, and our current and future associates and policyholders.”
