Global loss adjuster McLarens Young International (MYI) has expanded its capability in the small to medium sized enterprise (SME) market with the acquisition of Washington Oregon Claim Service (WOCS), a prominent middle market claims adjusting firm in the US Pacific Northwest.
The acquisition is MYI’s first step into the US middle market and will begin to balance its high value commercial and complex claims portfolio with loss assignments from regional and midmarket clients.
WOCS joins the MYI group of companies as a wholly owned subsidiary, the management team and adjusting staff at WOCS will remain the same, along with its commitment to customer service and market leading technical expertise.
MYI US branch operations senior vice president Gary Brown said the strength is in the commitment to specializing in commercial, complex and high-net worth claims and continually seeking additional opportunities for strategic growth in these areas.
"The SME market is very distinct in the US and this acquisition gives us access to a completely new set of clients, both in the US and internationally," Brown said.
