Grand Rapids Hylant Office


Hylant is one of the country’s largest privately held insurance brokerages, specializing in business insurance, personal insurance and employee benefits locally, nationally, and internationally. Our Grand Rapids office was established in 2006 with the acquisition of RW Barss, Inc. Since that time, we have grown to over 35 employees.



We have clients in many business sectors including a large number in construction, education, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, real estate, and technology. Hylant offers a variety of risk specialties for your business insurance needs, as well as a full suite of employee benefit services, including health and wellness. We serve companies of all sizes and provide home and auto insurance for individuals as well. 

Thinking of an idea


As a long-time family-owned business, we know the value of developing personal relationships along with customized plans for each organization, considering all of their unique needs as well as current trends in the market. Our culture fosters partnerships with our clients to solve problems and create innovative solutions.

Community outreach


We are proud to support the organizations and people that are positively impacting the greater Grand Rapids region such as Goodwill of Greater Grand Rapids, Hearth of West Michigan United Way, Thresholds, Broadway Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Symphony and John Ball Zoo. This year, we’ll be donating our marketing budget to highlight some of the amazing organizations and the people who gave back to West Michigan. Join us and donate your time to help finish their stories.
