Welcome to the digital home of Hausch & Company. It is a pleasure to introduce you to our firm that has been dedicated to the professional adjustment of claims since 1948. Attorney Robert Winters of Rock Island, Illinois laid the foundation of the company. Mr. Winter created a branch of his firm to independently adjust insurance claims and named the company Illinois – Iowa Claim Service. The home office was in Moline, Illinois and served the greater Quad-City area from 1948 to present from the banks of the Mississippi River.
In 1974, a new owner, Dale Stonehocker, took the helm and expanded into Johnson county and eastern Iowa. The company was then servicing the eastern half of Iowa and the Northwest part of Illinois. In February 1995, Douglas Stonehocker and David Hausch relocated from the Quad City’s office and began the expansion into the Chicago, Illinois market. Since our initial opening in the Chicago suburbs we have been growing our opportunities and eventually making the windy city the location of our home office now located in Algonquin, IL.
In 2000, Craig Krapfl opened our Des Moines, Iowa office. The Des Moines office is centrally located and allows us to expand our service area to the entire state of Iowa. The expanded territory in Iowa continued our focus on providing simple claim solutions for our clients. The final part of our current service footprint came in 2005 when Eran Schuettpelz opened our St. Louis, Missouri office. Eran trained in the Chicago office for several years and took on the challenge of opening our St. Louis office. The opening of that office expanded our territory into Eastern Missouri and allowed us to further serve central Illinois and eventually down to the southern edges of Illinois.
The office expansion created what is now the Midwest footprint of the company, serving all of Illinois, Iowa, Eastern Missouri and Southern Wisconsin. With the St. Louis office open and the firm operating in several Midwest states, the company had outgrown the territory restrictions of the original name, Illinois – Iowa Claim Service. In 2008, the name change was made to Hausch & Company.
We have been very fortunate to have great employees and expand our service territory but we have never lost the focus of what has allowed us to be in business for more than 60 years, the constant pursuit of excellent service and the professional resolution of claims. Thank you for visiting our website.
