NISS Turns 60!

NISS has now been providing statistical reporting services for 60 years! Over the last 25 years we have sustained the most significant growth in our history. After making steady growth a priority, NISS has added more than 150 new member companies over that time!

We credit the growth in large part to the availability and responsiveness of the NISS staff to member inquiries. Whether we are contacted by a large national writer or a growing new company, the NISS staff is committed to working closely with you to resolve any issues that may arise. We are excited about our growth and look forward to maintaining our existing high standards of service for years to come.
