No matter what size of manufacturing business you own, you need protection against many types of losses. Those in the manufacturing business need specific commercial property insurance and general liability insurance that protect the unique risks involved in operating a manufacturing business.

Manufacturers face numerous and potentially severe environmental risks, whether stemming from their facility operations, their products, their services, their waste disposal practices, or even their over-the-road exposures. Because they can be held liable for damages resulting from any of these sources, a thorough risk mitigation program cannot be considered complete without pollution coverage for these insureds in place as a key risk transfer mechanism.
