Granite Claims Solutions has acquired HR Leiher Insurance Adjusters, a firm based in Collingwood, Ont.
HR Leiher Insurance Adjusters was formed in 1991 and has since serviced Simcoe County and surrounding areas handling all classes of insurance claims. The company’s founder and principal, Harold Leiher, started his claims career for a national insurer in 1976 and has been an independent adjuster since 1980.
“As a firm, they have always impressed us and been on our radar for quite some time as a potential partner due to their dedication to high-quality claims adjusting and their client-focused approach,” Michael Holden, president and CEO of Granite Claims Solutions, said. “They very much mirror the standards set out by Granite Claims.”
In addition to increased coverage in the Collingwood area, the acquisition of HR Leiher provides a substantial increase in Granite’s municipal claims skill set.
“I believe the merger between our companies is mutually beneficial,” Leiher said. “In particular, our existing clients will greatly benefit from Granite’s technology and the depth of talent on the Granite team. As well, their quality program is a model we will fit into very nicely.”
