Addis Investigación y Seguridad

Addis Investigación y Seguridad is the adjusting services company that specialises in the investigation of the cause of fires and explosions, intrusion and fire security systems, electrical damage and breakdowns, investigation of workplace accidents and reconstruction of road accidents.

The seedling that gave rise to Addis is the Fire Investigation division, which dates back to 2006.  Since then, this division, known by its Afire brand, has been the benchmark company in the market. This division abides by the NFPA921 and NFPA 1033 fire investigator guide principles, which guarantees to our clients the strictest confidentiality of our technical reports.

The professional experience of our technical staff and their academic training, enable us to produce adjuster’s reports guaranteed to be technically sound and, at the same time, written in a clear and intelligible manner that facilitates reading and understanding. Moreover, we work applying strict scientific methodology and offer additional drone (RPAS – Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) and testing laboratory services.

From its Madrid headquarters, Addis provides its services worldwide. In Spain, we adjust 90% of the total claims. We share the Addvalora office network, with worldwide locations through its offices, franchises, exclusive associates and its network of representatives. In Spain, Addis works closely with one of the leading engineering and consultancy companies, with ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 14001 environmental management certification.
