Insurance for manufacturers in the print industry
The print industry is an area that we have a great deal of experience in. Our extensive knowledge of the sector allows us to offer you the exact industry specific covers you require in your insurance programme to make sure that if the unexpected happens, you will be able to recover quickly and continue to operate with minimal disruption.
We can help to protect every trade sector within the print industry from specialist graphic design companies to multi-site printers, with robust policies at affordable premiums. Our knowledgeable advisers will provide you with tailored advice on the right programme of covers for your unique operation.
In a fast-paced industry that relies on highly technical machinery to deliver printed products, if something should fail, or an incident occur, making sure you have a detailed contingency plan and comprehensive insurance cover will be vital. Your print machine could fail leaving you unable to meet customer expectations, and a replacement part could take months to be installed, which means you’d be out of action for some time. How would you retain customer confidence and continue to operate? With insurance cover that includes ‘increased cost of working’ you can quickly make alternative arrangements even if the costs to do so are more significant. Or perhaps an employee makes an error and the print run is spoiled, your insurance will be there to help you cover the cost of the mistake and maintain positive client relationships.
Our partnerships with some of the UK’s leading providers of insurance for the printing industry, ensures that you will have access to the right cover, with industry specific wordings and extensions, for complete peace of mind. Cover can include Inching and Crawling, Libel and Slander, Transparencies and Bookbinder extensions.
We’ll partner you with a dedicated account manager who will carry out a detailed risk assessment to identify the risks you face now and to anticipate those that may occur in the future. Our expert advice will help you to create the right risk mitigation plan with your business objectives in mind.
