Insurance programs that are correctly designed for a manufacturing operation will include the above coverage in some form or other but it doesn’t stop there. Because of the complexity of most manufacturing operations, to be properly insured requires digging deeper into the actual products manufactured and the identification of loss exposure. Please read on.
Identification of Loss Exposures
Identification of your business operations exposure to risk is a requirement. After all, you can not properly design a manufacturing insurance program without gaining an understanding of the exposure to loss that your manufacturing company faces.
You’ll find that through our risk identification procedures we will work with you to help identify those specific loss situations that may impact your individual business and then work with you to develop a manufacturing insurance program that will address those identified loss exposures.
To begin our risk exposure identification procedure simply complete our risk exposure identification form and email it to our commercial team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive your completed form one of our commercial team members will reach out to you.

No one insurance package can meet all the needs of an individual manufacturing operation.
