Alliant Insurance Services, a specialty insurance brokerage firm, has acquired JD Tanner & Associates, a Dallas-based insurance agency that specializes in the trucking industry.

Post acquisition, JD Tanner & Associates will operate under the Alliant identity and it will be headed by company founder and president Jon Tanner.

JD Tanner & Associates was incorporated as an independent agency in 2002. Currently, the firm provides insurance coverage for trucking enterprises nationwide ranging from single truck owner-operators to national carriers.

In addition to trucking transportation insurance, the firm also provides business, personal insurance, trucking safety and compliance training.

Alliant chairman and CEO Tom Corbett said Alliant has differentiated itself in the marketplace through a strategy of providing insurance products and services to meet the unique needs of clients in specialized industries. With its strong presence and specialization in trucking and transportation, JD Tanner certainly meets the acquisition criteria.

Tanner said that his company’s acquisition by Alliant will provide his staff with expanded resources and services that will enable his team to better serve its existing clients and expand its business throughout the US.
