Manufacturing Equipment Insurance
For manufacturing companies, equipment breakdowns can be quite costly. Your operations, your reputation, and your profits rely heavily on your machinery and equipment functioning well. Manufacturing equipment insurance (aka equipment breakdown insurance) will help to cover your costs should your equipment malfunction. These may include explosion damage, mechanical breakdowns, electrical breakdowns, etc. However, equipment breakdown insurance can also offer protection against any outside factors such as theft, vandalism, flood damage, weather damage, etc.
Business Interruption Insurance
This manufacturing insurance coverage covers loss of income if your operations are interrupted because of a disaster. Business interruption insurance will cover the revenue your manufacturing company would have earned during and following a forced shutdown of your manufacturing facilities. This would include fixed operating expenses like mortgage or rental payments, taxes, electricity, etc.
Manufacturing Facility Insurance
The building you occupy may be insured through your commercial property insurance. This type of insurance generally offers protection for the building and the building’s contents including your office equipment, tools and machinery, plus inventory. See our page on Commercial Property Insurance for more information.
Errors and Omissions Insurance
Product defects, failure to perform, and other related issues fall under manufacturing errors and omissions insurance. Manufacturing E&O insurance helps to protect you against negligence or mistakes in the manufacturing process. You will certainly want to be covered if, for any reason, your product fails to function as intended and causes bodily injury, property damage or financial loss to the end user. See also our page on Directors and Officers Insurance coverage.
Manufacturing Overhead Insurance
Manufacturing overhead refers to your factory operations and includes indirect costs and costs incurred. Factory maintenance, quality control, the rent you pay, or the depreciation on your manufacturing facility or your factory equipment would all be considered as part of your overhead.
Manufacturing Liability Insurance
In the eyes of the law, your company may be held responsible for damages incurred by a third party. Manufacturers can face any number of risks so we recommend that you include liability coverage with your manufacturing insurance policy. If your products should have a design, manufacturing, or marketing defect and cause sickness, property damage, or bodily injury, liability insurance will help protect your business against any third party liability claims.
