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.
