In the United States, Broadspire was acquired by Crawford in 2006 to supplement its Third Party Administration (TPA) division. Broadspire, a Crawford Company, has been a leading TPA for many years, recognised as a premier provider of workers’ compensation and liability claims management, medical management and integrated disability management services.
Crawford in Europe also has extensive TPA experience and expertise offering a range of services appropriate to the local markets. In the UK from June 2009 this service is offered under the brand Broadspire, named after the American company Crawford.
In order to consolidate its reputation as a global TPA brand, Broadspire services are offered across the rest of Europe utilising Crawford's existing or extended European claims management operations, while the loss adjusting services continue to be provided under the Crawford brand throughout the world.
Broadspire has been officially launched as Crawford’s TPA brand for Europe at FERMA, the European Risk Managers Conference held in Prague in October. Its launch will follow at local levels during 2010 throughout Europe. Stay tuned to learn more.
