Charles Taylor beefs up marine capabilities

Insurance services company Charles Taylor has announced the expansion of its marine technical services offering with the integration of Bowditch Marine, Pilot Marine and the marine surveyors of Charles Taylor Adjusting.

The newly integrated team will be known as Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services.

London-headquartered Charles Taylor purchased Bowditch Marine Inc. in 2018 and acquired Pilot Marine earlier this year to service the US marine industry.

Charles Taylor Adjusting has been providing full-service adjusting and surveying services in the US, including marine surveying, since 2001.

The group combines decades of marine surveying expertise and will provide marine and cargo surveying and consulting services to assist vessel owners, reinsurance and insurance underwriters, and other maritime interests, the company said in a statement.

“The creation of Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services, through bringing together our highly skilled industry professionals, will enable us to centralize technical expertise under one brand, streamline client responsiveness and leverage operational scale,” said Christopher Schaffer, head of Charles Taylor Third Party Administration.
