Edmonton-based SCM Insurance Services Inc. announced Wednesday it is acquiring St. Louis-based adjusting firm Nixon & Company Inc.
The move comes eight months after SCM announced the opening of a Chicago office and the appointment of Scott Goodreau as chief operating officer-USA.
SCM’s units include independent adjusting firm ClaimsPro.
In addition to its St. Louis office, Nixon and Company also has Missouri offices in Kansas City, Cape Girardeau and Columbia, plus a Chicago office.
Nixon provides claims adjusting in property, liability, auto, catastrophic loss, inland marine, mold investigation and construction defect, among others.
Nixon and Company “provides a new platform from which SCM will continue to build out its service offerings both domestically and into the Lloyd’s of London market place,” SCM said May 3 in a release.
In addition to ClaimsPro, SCM also owns Pario Engineering and Environmental Sciences, formerly known as Rochon, and Xpera Risk Mitigation & Investigation, which was formed from the merger of Forensic Investigation Services and CKR Global.
Other SCM subsidiaries include Opta Information Intelligence and Cira Health Solutions.
In 2014, SCM bought the P&C business of Granite Global Solutions, which owned Granite Claims Solutions, previously known as McLarens Canada and Ponton Coleshill Edwards & Associates.
