About Us


With the ever changing risks and large exposures, more insurance contracts are being underwritten with quota-share participation to address the increasing values and limits.  That results in the demand for specialized independent adjusting services that continues to keep up with the latest repair techniques and challenges.   We believe that if one looks at the over-all independent adjusting world, Specialty Adjusters, Inc. is one of the few companies that can handle complicated losses in a professional manner that will minimize the costs for Underwriters, Brokers and Assureds alike.

After an exciting and prosperous career with Hartford Steam Boiler starting in 1981, Tracy L. Smith left Hartford Steam Boiler in January 1997 and helped form an alliance initiating a US office operation of IRISC Technical Services (USA), an independent insurance adjusting company. Based on the need for a specialized technical adjusting firm, March 16, 1999, Giles & Smith Insurance Technical Services, dba “ITS (Worldwide)”, a Texas Corporation was formed. After years servicing the needs of the independent adjusting demands in the insurance industry, ITS (Worldwide) better identified the technical needs of the industry.

On February 18, 2003, Tracy L. Smith formed Specialty Adjusters, Inc. located in Houston, in order to meet the needs of the Special Risks requirements facing the large exposure industries including Petro-Chemical, Construction and Power Generation facilities of today’s markets. In May 2008, Tracy moved his office and staff to Woodville, TX, just northeast of Houston.

We continue to service our clients throughout the world with skilled individuals with high integrity to provide timely and comprehensive analysis of the assignments.  We pride ourselves for being thorough and completing our assignments in a timely manner.
