Ready to get started? Let’s begin with the pressing question…

Why do you need manufacturers’ insurance?

There are many moving parts in a manufacturing operation, and your products are only one side of the equation. Equipment, property, retail partners and safety are other key components that need your close attention.

Manufacturers' insurance - Manufacturing rests on relationships

Manufacturing rests on relationships.

Even though you’re in charge of making and delivering your product, you probably count on a number of other people at various points in the production and retail chain. You need to be prepared if someone else’s misstep falls squarely on your shoulders, and impacts your bottom line.

Risks vary, and consequences can be extensive

Risks vary, and consequences can be extensive.

Depending on your particular industry, you could face everything from product damage to equipment breakdown to auto incidents in your daily operations. When major equipment is involved, these events can jeopardize safety, revenue and your reputation – and without a good safety net, it can take a long time to recover.

Manufacturers' insurance - Specialized work calls for specialized coverage

Specialized work calls for specialized coverage.

When you work with complex or delicate equipment, breakdowns can cost you more time and money. Aside from the expense, the precision and scope of your operations can push your loss beyond the reach of a general business insurance policy. Specific coverage is smarter coverage.
