Manufacturing Insurance

Backhouse Insurance is a leading independent insurance broker, our clients range from sole traders to major UK business and UK divisions of global manufacturers.

We have built up a considerable expertise with a wide variety of manufacturing companies working with metals, plastics, rubber and carbon fiber composites to name just a few.

Products range from bespoke ironwork artifacts to specialist component and machinery manufacturers.

We also have clients involved in the manufacture and processing of a wide range of beverages and food, with a demand for sourcing product recall insurance.

If it can be manufactured, processed or worked upon in any way, we probably already deal with clients who have similar requirements and if not our aim is to make sure that we soon will do.

IS IT TIME TO REVALUE YOUR JEWELLERY

At present we are all seeing many articles and commentaries in the press and TV regarding the price of gold, silver and diamonds on a seemingly upward trend in cost.This is very true as you can see from the attached graph showing gold and silver over a two year period.

THEFT OF HEATING OIL

The cost of heating oil has increased significantly recently, resulting in more thefts of oil from both domestic and commercial properties.

The first indication that a theft has taken place is often when the heating stops working.

OVERVIEW – 2011

Rate reductions are still possible for clients for property and liability insurance.  Abundant capacity and competition between Insurers are preventing increases, other than where there has been poor claims experience on individual accounts or within specific sectors.

DO YOU HAVE DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS INSURANCE?

The first Corporate Manslaughter Prosecution has been successful in the United Kingdom.

It is more important than ever to ensure that your Managers, Directors, Officers as well as the Company have cover in place to protect them.

CHANGES TO THE MOTOR INSURANCE DATABASE

From 2011 if your vehicle is not registered on the MID and has not been declared as 'Off-Road' you will receive a letter warning you that you could face a fine, prosecution as well as your vehicle being clamped, seized or ultimately destroyed.

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY INSURANCE FROM 1ST APRIL 2011

With effect from 1st April 2011 the Employers' liability Tracing Office (ELTO) will be introduced.

The purpose of the ELTO is to assist the insurance industry in meeting its obligations to help those who have suffered injury or disease in the workplace identify the relevant insurer quickly and efficiently.

We have since 2008 used Backhouse to place all our insurance risks, their unique approach to our tender process was one of the major factors behind placing our trust in Backhouse. They took the trouble to research our business carefully and brought to our attention areas of cover that had never been considered before.

We find Backhouse both conscientious, professional and great value for money delivering a first class claims service.
