What is manufacturers insurance?
A manufacturing business faces considerable everyday risk: fire, explosion, third-party liability claims, loss of goods in transit, business interruption and product recalls are just some of the threats faced by manufacturers. Manufacturing insurance, customized for the individual needs of the business, can help protect manufacturers when problems arise in their facilities and other points throughout the supply chain.
What does manufacturers insurance cover?
Most manufacturers insurance policies include the following key components:
Property Coverage: protection against events that lead to damage or loss of your building, contents, equipment and fixtures. Fire, explosion, theft, and windstorm are common examples of perils.
Commercial General Liability (CGL) Insurance: protects you against claims of bodily injury or property damage against third parties, including legal expenses, settlement costs, and medical fees of the injured party.
Products Liability: protects against claims alleging that a third party suffered bodily injury or property damage caused by a product that you manufacture, import, distribute, or sell to a customer. Claims may result from defects during the design, manufacturing, or marketing of a product.
Manufacturer’s Errors and Omissions (E & O) Insurance: also known as professional liability, manufacturer’s errors and omissions insurance protects you from lawsuits alleging that you failed to deliver or provide a product or service as promised.
Equipment Breakdown Insurance: protects your company’s mechanical, electrical, and computer equipment from unexpected breakdowns. Equipment covered may include mechanical, electrical, computer and communications, air conditioner and refrigeration systems, and boilers and pressure equipment.
Business Interruption Insurance: helps your business pay bills, replace lost income and cover payroll when a covered event forces your business to temporarily cease operations.
Cyber Insurance: covers your business for liability resulting from data breaches, ransomware, and other malicious acts.
Goods In Transit Insurance: protects your insured goods against loss or damage by fire, theft, or accidental means while the goods are in transit in a road vehicle or train or housed in the ordinary course of transit.
Product Recall Insurance: protects your business against the fallout that occurs when a product causes injury or other damage to customers. Product recalls can result from flaws in manufacturing, design, marketing, or even misuse by end users.
