The Hanover Insurance Group Inc. has expanded its Hanover Specialty Industrial insurance program for manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors by adding environmental liability protection. The additional coverage will help to protect industrial businesses against a growing number of environmental risks, the insurer says.
Hanover Specialty Industrial offers protection for high-hazard industrial clients. Property coverage is available on an admitted basis to companies with sprinkler protection systems in place. In addition, a team within the group offers other coverages through partnerships with specialty carriers, enabling agents to meet all the unique needs of industrial customers, whether they are sprinklered or not.
Hanover Specialty Industrial also offers liability coverages such as environmental liability and difficult products liability for companies with and without sprinklers.
“With more businesses investing in productivity improvements and innovation, there has been a revival of manufacturing companies in North America, creating an opportunity for independent agents,” said Andre Krutainis, president, Hanover Specialty Industrial.
Hanover Specialty Industrial writes more than 30 classes of businesses to which they provide primary insurance coverage. These include manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of flammable and combustible chemicals, mattresses, furniture, plastics, perfumes, cosmetics, and lotions, as well as rubber/tire products, recyclers, janitorial supply companies, and pesticide companies, among others.
