Local claim adjustment company celebrates 70 years in business

Johns Eastern Company, an insurance claims adjuster and third party administrator with offices in Manatee and Sarasota counties, will celebrate its 70th anniversary later this month.

Since founded in 1946, Johns Eastern has grown from a one-person operation into a business that employs more than 240 people, according to a Johns Eastern release. The company provides claim adjustment services to public entities, insurance companies and self-insured corporations.

“We are excited to be celebrating our 70th anniversary — a significant milestone that few companies achieve,” company president Donald E. Lederer said in a release.

Lederer announced plans to mark the anniversary by launching a redesigned company website and hosting several events “to show appreciation for our staff and our clients.”
