Celebrating National Tradesmen Day

Celebrating National Tradesmen Day

America’s hardworking tradespeople maintain our roads, cities, water systems, and power grids. We honor these professionals on National Tradesmen Day, the third Friday in September.

From the earliest tradespeople, known as “firestarters” and “rockgrinders,” to today’s electricians, masons, carpenters, and mechanics, our society could not function and adapt at the pace it does without these skilled workers.

NJM Insurance Company especially offers thanks to the many tradespeople who have called the Mid-Atlantic region “home.”

NJM was founded in 1913 to insure the workplaces of the manufacturers and tradespeople who helped build the economy of the Garden State. As the need for more tradespeople in New Jersey grew, so too did NJM. Since then, NJM has evolved from a New Jersey–based workers’ compensation insurer to the nationally recognized, multi-line regional carrier. It all started with a need to insure those willing to do the tough jobs that many others wouldn’t.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the tradespeople who keep America’s and NJM’s lights on. If you weren’t here to help build our local communities and economies, NJM would look very different today.

To all tradespeople, thank you again for your service, and here’s wishing you much success and safety in all the days ahead.
