Company History

Johns & Company, founded by Corydon T. Johns in 1946, began as a one-man operation based in Tampa, Florida. Shortly thereafter in 1947, Donald L. Johns joined his brother Corydon and established the second office of Johns & Company in Sarasota, Florida.

Following incorporation on January 1, 1966, the firm became Johns & Company, Insurance Adjusters, Inc. In January, 1971, Johns & Company purchased Eastern Adjustment Company, Inc., which had been servicing the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States as a respected independent adjusting firm for 20 years. This acquisition gave Johns & Company access to markets outside Florida, and led to the corporate name we now know, Johns Eastern Company, Inc.

The following decades brought continued growth in our Independent Adjusting and Third Party Administration services. In 1999, we completed construction of our corporate headquarters in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. This office has served as the center of operations for our TPA and IA services as well as our Catastrophe services.
