What is Keystone Benefits Partners?

Keystone Benefits Partners (KBP) is a member owned, member governed organization of employers.  Collectively, KBP members purchase employee benefits and participate in highly effective risk and cost management programs. Each of the KBP member organizations is qualified and accepted by their peers.

Since its inception in 2008, this program has been driving down the escalating cost of employee benefits and offering its member companies total control, flexibility, and tools designed to meet their human capital needs. This is a powerful and proven program that also provides members with opportunities to participate and benefit from the sharing of “best practices” with several of the area's best quality companies.

The member organizations of KBP are a growing list of “who’s who” in the regional business community, and each board member will gladly share how his/her organization has benefited from the KBP program, and will tell you that it’s a proven risk model. The shared vision and goal of the KBP members is rather clear: control and drive down the cost of employee benefits year after year! We are proud to state that this program is “bending the cost curve” and that it is exceeding those expectations!

Meet Annette Emrich-Starry from ECORE International


"I remember when I first became responsible for handling our health insurance plan many years ago, I was terrified. I was not new in my HR role but I was pretty “green” in handling a self-funded medical plan budget. At renewal time, I tried to lean on our broker for help, but felt that the estimation of claims for the budget was not very scientific and I felt pretty vulnerable financially should we have a bad year. After one year of watching my budget like a hawk, losing sleep over big claims and calculating stop loss reimbursements, I was so ready for the KBP program. It was one of our Board members who told us about KBP and put us in contact with Jeff and Frank. After learning about the concept of what this health consortium can do for us, I felt so relieved. The switch was pretty seamless. The protection and peace of mind was priceless. Over the years, we truly learned what it means to be part of this group…excellent service and great protection. Many thanks to McConkey and Benecon for being there for us!"

Since 1871, Ecore has been transforming reclaimed waste into unique surfaces that make people's lives better. What started with simple cork closures has evolved into a diverse portfolio of products solving complex problems in applications ranging from playgrounds, weight rooms, and turf fields to hospitals, hotels, and retail environments. We are driven everyday by a simple question, “Can a floor do more?” At Ecore, we believe the answer is “YES.” We are building our company and the products we offer based on the simple notion that floors should elevate beyond current expectations. Our energy is focused on the interaction between people and the surface. We engineer performance well beyond industry standards related to acoustics, ergonomics, and safety. Harvesting the unique power from a myriad of waste streams, Ecore creates products that align–substantial force reduction with a balanced amount of energy return to create dynamic surfaces that are catered to the individual and the application. Ecore is comprised of four business units: Ecore Athletic, Ecore Commercial Flooring, Ecore Construction, and Ecore Industrial.
