Due to the unique risks faced by businesses operating within the manufacturing sector, it is vital that you work with a proactive insurance broker who supports you throughout your term, not just in the lead up to renewal. We have over 40 years of experience working with manufacturing businesses, therefore we understand the nuances of the industry, and have vast expertise in arranging manufacturing insurance solutions and providing risk management advice to these businesses.

When we work with new clients, we work closely with you to understand exactly how your business operates, where you spend your time, and what the future for your company looks like. We then present our findings and discuss the detail of the insurance coverage and the risk management solution we are suggesting, as well as identifying any claims trends, if you have historically struggled with a high-volume of claims.

Arranging cover for just the standard insurance products can seem like a sensible commercial decision, but it may leave you exposed.

Take cyber-attacks as one example, according to the government, 81% of large businesses and 60% of small businesses suffered a cyber-attack in the last year. With the average costs for cyber-attacks running into the hundreds of thousands of pounds, we work with you to ensure you are aware of all the risks you face, not just the most prominent.
