Our History

Shield-KRA

Our History

KRA Insurance Agency, Inc. began with the Kalem Agency, which opened in Springfield, New Jersey in 1950. In 1970, Michael Rekoon opened the Rekoon Agency. Both agencies worked closely until they merged in July 1982, forming Kalem Rekoon Agency, or KRA.

From the very beginning, KRA has built its business on a simple premise: we treat each of our clients as we would want to be treated. Through superior knowledge of the insurance industry, aggressive advocacy on behalf of their clients, expert advice, and exceptional customer service, KRA has become one of the region’s leading independent insurance agencies.

KRA has grown from two people to nearly fifty employees and offers nearly every type of insurance product you would need for yourself, your family, or your business. Our team of licensed professionals, who have an average of 20 years of industry experience, will guide you through the entire process—we will help you select the insurance that is right for your needs, our experienced and courteous customer service staff will provide services related to your policies, and, in the event that there is a need for it, our claims department will help you file a claim and navigate through the claims process from beginning to end.

Despite the notoriously high turnover rate for clients in the insurance industry, many of our clients have been clients for decades, and many others are second- and third-generation clients. You will understand why when you purchase your insurance through KRA and receive the advice and outstanding service you deserve from your independent insurance agency.

Since its founding, KRA has been a Springfield, New Jersey staple. Its first offices were on Linden Avenue. In 1994 KRA moved to Morris Avenue, and in 2004 KRA moved to its present location, 871 Mountain Avenue, conveniently located next to Echo Plaza Shopping Center off of Route 22.
