)-- John Yurconic Agency, Allentown has acquired the Hazleton Insurance Center, following the trend of other Lehigh Valley companies that have expanded their footprint into Luzerne County.
Hazleton Insurance and John Yurconic Agency are Keystone Insurers Group partner agencies. Donald Laputka of Hazleton Insurance and John T. Yurconic have had a business relationship since the early 1990s. According to Mr. Laputka, it was a natural fit.

We intend to keep the Hazleton Insurance Center open and maintain a presence in the community.”
Customers of Hazleton Insurance can expect to work with the same insurance team composed of Joanne Laputka, Tom Keerans and Sandy DeAndrea. The name will change to John Yurconic Agency, with new systems being installed to enhance the quoting and underwriting process. Existing customers and new customers will save both time and money in a highly automated, service-oriented environment.
