One of the Midwest’s leading manufacturers of commercial glass and glazing products, curtain wall, storefront glass, composite wall panels and aluminum windows and doors suffered a significant fire to its production facilities in Indiana. The immediate response by Hall Aluminum Products was to retain Alex N. Sill Company, the nation’s leading public insurance claims adjuster and loss consultant, to assist with adjustment of the building, business personal property and business income loss. Sill, based in Cleveland, Ohio, along with its regional office in Indianapolis, immediately mobilized its staff of in-house building consultants, inventory specialists and forensic accountants to inventory and document the damage and present a claim to Hall’s insurance company.
As Hall’s President and Owner, Joe Schwieterman attests:
Sill’s immediate involvement in taking over the daily activity, preparing and presenting the claim allowed Hall, within 10 days, to lease two temporary spaces and begin fabricating. The result of Sill’s work and involvement was a successful settlement of the fire insurance claim in excess of $2 million.
As pointed out by Mr. Schwieterman:
“After we experienced a fire at our warehouse . . . your company was instrumental in helping me understand the process that insurance companies use to evaluate and settle a claim. Your company also assisted us in determining fair value on equipment and office furniture . . . Lastly, we were offered valuable help in dealing with insurance companies, adjustors and fire consultants in areas such as accounting, equipment inventory and depreciation schedules. I appreciate all that your company has done for us.”
