The AmTrust Group of insurance carriers and its sister company, Warrantech, will now be supporting the National Glass Exchange’s (NGE) Windshield Protection Plans. Through the new agreement, AmTrust will provide the underwriting of NGE’s products, and Warrantech will manage claims administration for the programs.
NGE is an auto glass industry products and services provider headquartered in Clovis, Calif. It focuses on systems and services for insurance companies, auto dealerships and the glass industry. NGE’s Windshield Protection suite of offerings provides a way for insurance companies to manage their auto glass programs. Insurers can now offer their customers a separate Windshield Protection Plan for auto glass repair and replacement.
Over the past year, NGE and AmTrust, an underwriter of warranty programs across many sectors, including automotive specialty risk coverage, have been working together to secure regulatory compliance in all states. NGE plans to introduce its product portfolio in the second half of 2012. Windshield Protection Plans will initially be sold through insurance carriers and auto dealers.
