Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB), the world's largest independent provider of claims management solutions, has formally launched its Global Technical Services (GTS) division in Mexico to more effectively manage large and complex claims from the growing insurance market in the region.

“We are seeing significant growth in Mexico and throughout Latin America, and we are formalizing our GTS presence in the country to better serve our clients,” said Mauricio Alonso, chief executive officer of Crawford’s Latin American and Caribbean operations. “Our loss adjusters have the experience and industry focus to evaluate, assess and mitigate damages as quickly as possible. In addition, we can draw on all our GTS resources in the region and around the world to ensure that our clients’ needs are met.”

Crawford & Company de Mexico SA de CV, Crawford’s arm in Mexico and one of the largest independent loss adjusters in the country, recently marked the GTS launch with a conference for the insurance and reinsurance market held at the Club France in Mexico City.
