ClaimsPro Continues Expansion with Acquisition of Westman Claims Adjusters
Toronto— ClaimsPro, the country’s largest independent claims adjusting company, continues its expansion with the acquisition of Westman Claims Adjusters (Westman). Effective December 4, 2012, the acquisition aligns with ClaimsPro’s plan for strategic growth through acquisition and signals its commitment to growing its core services in a way that directly benefits its clients.
Based out of Brandon, Manitoba, Westman has been serving the P&C market since 2008 and has strong relationships with its local brokerages. Highly respected in the industry, Westman’s experienced team of senior adjusters, including its three principals, will remain intact following the acquisition. Westman’s clients can expect a smooth continuation of services as it adopts the ClaimsPro banner—there will be no changes to services.
"This acquisition increases our geographic coverage in Manitoba and enhances our team with highly skilled senior adjusters," explains Bob Fitzgerald, ClaimsPro’s President. "The addition of this well-reputed company also increases our capacity to service our national program clients."
"As part of ClaimsPro, Westman Claims Adjusters look forward to the support and resources of a national network. We believe this merger will allow us to better service our existing clients, and all clients for both firms, in the years to come" shares James Barnett, one of Westman’s three principals.
With this acquisition, ClaimsPro increases its already unrivalled geographic footprint and skill sets, thereby enhancing its ability to support its clients on a national scale.
