About Us

Rain or shine, we’ve got you covered.

From our offices in Stroud, Bristow and Shawnee, Oklahoma, we insure clients throughout Oklahoma and the surrounding states.  We are proud to be a small town company with small town values.  We know the people we protect and are able to look them in the eye when we discuss their important insurance coverage.  We make sure what is represented is the best we have to offer to the client, not what is best for us.

Since 1954.

John R. Carpenter Insurance Agency, Inc. has been family owned since 1954 and has roots back to 1928. John R. “Jack” Carpenter worked for his father’s auto dealership before starting his own business: an insurance agency. Jack started this agency with 3 things in mind: Be attentive to clients, support our community, and have a lot of coffee along the way.

I think the most important thing is being honest. And being attentive. I think if a person tries to satisfy his customers, he’s alright. But if he doesn’t, and they know it, he isn’t going to last.

As an independent agent, we have the ability to research numerous companies and offer coverage tailored to the client, not one size fits all coverage as some.  We offer all types of insurance from personal to commercial, and life and health.  We excel at difficult coverages and placements.  We represent the finest and strongest of insurance companies such as Travelers, Hartford, EMC, Progressive, Safeco, and Allstate.  We also represent valued regional carriers such as National American, Mid-Continent, Farmers Alliance, and CompSource Mutual.

The staff at Carpenter Insurance Agency spends numerous hours on product knowledge and a large percentage of our licensed staff has earned industry designations.  Each of our producers has a designation earned by a six week study course and two weeks of classroom experience.  Our support personnel attend classes in risk management, loss mitigation, claims handling, improving people skills and are urged to attend any class which would improve the service and client experience with our company.


Carpenter Insurance and its employees are proud to be active members of the community.  You will see our employees and their families in church, helping with youth programs, supporting sports activities, school programs, and enjoying their civic responsibility.
