At West Bend, we’re proud of our broad base of knowledge when it comes to commercial risks. In fact, we’ve probably insured just about every kind of business at one time or another. Over the years, however, we’ve developed extensive expertise of certain businesses and the skills needed to underwrite them.
Metal goods manufacturers are those types of businesses. Because of this, we’ve become competitive in insuring them. Most importantly, our underwriters know and understand what coverages are necessary to protect them.
The type of metal goods manufacturers we focus are manufacturers of stamped, rolled, turned, pressed, cut, machined, or soldered/welded products. Products manufactured are typically component parts but may include finished goods and products manufactured under their own label from material other than wood or plastic. The types of products manufactured include, but aren’t limited to, bolt, nut, screw manufacturers; cutlery and flatware manufacturers; metal pattern manufacturers; pipe or tube manufacturers; sign manufacturers; various types of tool manufacturers; machine shops; and decorative metal and precision metal products.
West Bend may be a good fit if your metal goods manufacturing business has a sprinkler system designed for your building, if painting operations are protected by NFPA standards, if you have a formal safety program that includes hot work and lockout/tagout practices, and if you employ excellent housekeeping practices.
