Chedza International Loss Adjusters (Pty) Ltd trading as Crawford & Company South Africa. The leading provider of professional claims management, legal and claims settlement/litigation and claims support services in Sub-Saharan Africa. Crawford & Company South Africa boasts a wealth of experience in global networking partnered with unsurpassed integration of local expertise in claims and region-specific knowledge. It offers a system of claims solutions through a comprehensive integrated Claims Management System, Global Technical Services Division (GTS), Business Process Outsourcing and Consulting Services. In 2006 Chedza International Holdings (Pty) Ltd (Chedza) purchased 25.1% of Crawford & Company South Africa. Chedza is a broad-based black economic empowerment (B–BBEE) company that is 100% black owned, 50% black women owned and a level 1 contributor to B-BBEE. In 2014 it purchased the remaining 74.9% of Crawford & Company South Africa, in effect changing the company’s shareholding structure. This decision was based on what would be in the best interest of the company, its employees and its shareholders. Following this, Crawford & Company International transferred its skills to the local Senior Management Team (SMT) – an eight year process that serves as a benchmark of true transformation in this sector. The result is a truly South African owned company with a close link to Crawford and Company International through their association agreement. Crawford & Company South Africa is the African associate of Crawford & Company International, a listed entity on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the world’s largest independent provider of claims management solutions, with around 9 000 staff working in more than 700 locations in 63 countries. Through the transformation and assisted by Chedza, Crawford & Company South Africa can now offer extended service offerings as well as specialised loss adjusting services. Chedza also assists the SMT team by introducing them to new clients. Crawford & Company South Africa’s head office is located in Bryanston (Gauteng) with branches in Durban, Cape Town, Paarl and Port Elizabeth.
