A family business in every way

Bob Dittmann started his insurance agency in 1946, with the goal of helping friends and neighbors in and around Pittsburg, Kansas. He wanted to provide the coverage they needed to feel protected at home, on the road, and at work. 

In the decades since, that goal hasn’t changed. We’re still family-owned and operated, just with a broader sense of family and even deeper expertise in insurance. Most of our agents have been here for decades. Many of our customers are generational. And our connections to the community and insurance providers are wider and stronger than ever.

We're weirdly into insurance

Our team is deeply devoted to insurance. Unusually so. We’ve spent years and years poring over policies and possibilities advocating for every client to get the best deal and the best coverage. And we’ve loved every minute of it. 

  • We love learning about families and businesses
  • Whatever you value, we’ll work to find coverage options
  • Giving you options is a thrill for us
  • We’ve been at this for a long time and we’re still excited about it

We believe in keeping business local, especially with someone who understands our community. There’s comfort in knowing that Dittmann Insurance knows our family and our needs. In those times of need, we trust that they have and will continue to serve us with honesty and integrity.

In this day in age there are not many bills that I choose to personally go and pay in person, and it isn’t because they don’t offer online bill pay. I honestly enjoy going and talking to Kip, Steve, Patti, Julie, and Nancy when my bill is due. They are always smiling and welcoming when you show up. I have been a customer of Dittmann Insurance for over 15 years, & they have insured my home, cars and rentals over that timeframe. Everyone there has always been very helpful when I have had a claim and have helped me through the process whenever I needed it. I have recommended them to many of my friends, and many of them have saved a lot of money by switching to Dittmann Insurance
