EMC’s Light Manufacturers Program

EMC Offers Many Types of Insurance for Manufacturing Companies

Manufacturing business insurance can include a variety of individual coverages, including:

Essential Property Coverage helps protect your buildings, tools and manufacturing equipment against physical damage such as fire.

Comprehensive Business Auto Coverage protects your delivery trucks if you transport products. It covers company vehicles and personal vehicles that your employees use for work.

Commercial General Liability Coverage protects your business from liability exposures, including premises and operations, independent contractors, product liability and completed operations. For example, if your company produces a product that causes harm to your customers, general liability insurance can help ease the financial burden.

Errors and Omissions (Manufacturing E&O) Insurance is an optional coverage that provides protection if a customer suffers financial damages due to a defective product.

Delivery Errors and Omissions Insurance is an optional coverage that provides protection if a customer suffers financial damages due to a delivery mishap.

Umbrella Coverage provides your business with additional security in the event of a catastrophic liability claim that would otherwise exceed your coverage limits.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance covers medical expenses and compensation for workers who get injured while on the job (available in select states).

How Much is Insurance for a Manufacturing Company?

The cost of manufacturing business insurance can vary depending on the size and type of your operations. EMC can customize your manufacturer insurance policy to work for you. Contact a local independent agent and ask about EMC’s manufacturer’s insurance.
