With currently more than 350 employees across 24 branches, ARTUS covers all steps of the value chain, offering extended services along the entire claim process, allowing it to be a one-stop-shop. In 2021, ARTUS processed over 10,000 claims in Germany and impressed its customers by consistently delivering market-leading quality enhanced by their short response time and high level of expertise across all of ARTUS’ services.
