Expert insurance for unique risks

Clients in the chemicals sector have particular insurance requirements that need the attention of an expert insurance broker.

In addition to the risks associated with running sophisticated laboratories and hi-tech production and packaging facilities, they will also be concerned with the efficiency of their products as well as their potential to cause harm, illness or injury.

Depending on the nature of the manufacturing processes involved, there will almost certainly be a higher than average Health & Safety exposure and there will always be the risk of theft both from the premises and while in transit.
