Allied Salvors, Inc. was formed in 2000 by Edward Flanagan, a salvor in the Northeast for 22 years. After graduating from Lycoming College (Williamsport, PA) with degrees in Political Science and Criminal Justice, Mr. Flanagan began his salvage career with George M. Ruddy & Company in New York. He continued on to M.F. Bank & Company and eventually Stoner & Company, learning the salvage business from some of the top names in the industry before opening Allied Salvors.

Mr. Flanagan has been certified as an expert witness in a number of Courts regarding contents damage and valuation and has been published in Claims Magazine on the subject.

Allied Salvors, Inc. is a member of several trade organizations including the Property Loss Research Bureau (PLRB), the Loss Executives Association (LEA), the Windstorm Insurance Network (WIND) and the Philadelphia Loss Conference (PLC).
