HOUSTON--EFI Global (EFI), a Cunningham Lindsey Company, and a leading provider of forensic engineering, fire investigation, environmental, and laboratory testing services, announced today its partnership with industrial production machinery and equipment rehabilitation experts Lighthouse Consulting and Restoration Services (Lighthouse) and its subsidiary company Industrial Loss Consultants (ILC) to provide loss, repair and replacement analysis for industrial machinery and equipment.
EFI’s partnership with Lighthouse and ILC will provide clients with a depth of expertise in the industrial production machinery arena that significantly increases the range of rehabilitation and repair options that were previously unavailable in the property and casualty insurance market. In losses involving industrial machinery or heavy equipment, EFI mechanical engineers determine the cause of the loss or failure, and once identified, Lighthouse provides the hands-on, technical evaluations to determine if and how the insured assets can be restored to pre-loss condition. Working together, EFI and Lighthouse will enhance the range of claim resolution solutions for clients dealing with heavy equipment losses.
“We’re thrilled to have a valued partner like Lighthouse supporting our growth and ongoing commitment to strengthen the expertise available to insurers of industrial machinery,” said Jeremy Mele, President of EFI Global. “By providing insurers with quality engineering evaluations and validated repair methodologies, we enable a realistic avenue for insureds to minimize business interruption and to experience creative solutions for repair and replacement.”
“This partnership with EFI is ultimately a major money saving win for insurers and the insured,” said Scott Kiley, Chairman and CEO of Lighthouse Consulting and Restoration Services and ILC. “When machinery and equipment is restorable, Lighthouse provides warrantied solutions that minimize business interruption, and in many cases, eliminate total loss. It is our warranty that allows the carrier to settle the claim and avoid writing the big check for new equipment replacement.”
