A message from Wallis

"Aloha friends,  I have been around the insurance business throughout my life.  My dad was always very active in the insurance industry on the island of Kauai since 1960, helping thousands of families on Kauai, and hundreds of businesses with their insurance needs.  This year, we celebrate 50 years of insurance for our family on Kauai!  Our agency has experienced two major hurricanes, 'Iwa, and 'Iniki.  Hurricane 'Iwa a Category 2, and Hurricane 'Iniki a Category 5, with devastating winds topping 210 miles per hour.  During Hurricane 'Iniki in 1992, Punua Insurance was one of the only fully automated and computerized agencies, ready to receive client's claims the day after the storm.  Thanks to my brother Victor, Jr. who is our computer specialist.  Our agency is comprised of a bright and dedicated staff; most whom have been with our agency over 30 years.  We are here for the long run, and look forward to helping our customers, their children, and grandchildren, with their insurance needs here on Kauai.

If you are new, and would like to inquire about our services, please contact me by e mail or phone, and I or our staff would be pleased to assist you.  Mahalo, Wallis"
